Performance Displaced

DATE 2011
DURATION 1 hour MATERIALS Two 750-piece puzzles

Sounds at The Art Institute of Chicago and at a fenced off lot in Chicago’s West Loop, an area undergoing gentrification, were recorded. The soundwaves were painted on two identical puzzles and the pieces of both were numbered. 
During the performance, which took place at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, pieces of the puzzles were switched.
Both puzzles were fixed at the end of the performance.
