Installation at Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art*, 2007-2008 Materials for Preparation of Object A (Blue Acrylic “Brick”): Vacant walls, blue acrylic paint, paintbrush, sheets of transparent plastic, plywood boards, floor
Instructions for Object A: 1. Hang the plastic sheets on the room’s vacant walls. 2. Cover the surface of the sheets with discrete brush strokes of paint. 3. Wait for the paint to dry. 4. In the meantime, from the wooden boards prepare an empty form whose surface area equals that of an ordinary brick. 5. When the paint has dried, peel the paint off the sheets. 6. Press the peeled paint (ex-strokes) into the form, and close it to obtain maximum compression of the acrylic material. 7. Extract the three-dimensional acrylic casting from the mould by disassembling its sides. 8. Place the blue brick on the floor. 9. Repeat the sequence of actions until the desirable amount of compressed color units is obtained.
Materials for Preparation of Object B (White Steel Hoops): Two steel pipes, primer (white) Instructions for Object B: 1. Instruct a metal shop to curve the two straight pipes into hoops, one hoop enclosing the other (like two links in a chain). 2. Instruct an industrial paint shop to cover the surfaces of the rings with primer.
