To Uninstall

Posted on by VMGWorks

hope you enjoy this time-lapse featuring the deinstallation of “pretty vacant”.  as we chipped and peeled and picked the little shreds of vinyl from the windows, i had plenty of time to say “good bye”  to this installation, planned for three months and lasting two years.


temporary works are becoming all the rage in public art.  i love the theatrical aspect of a large-scale work with a beginning, a middle, and an ending —  an artwork that intentionally ceases to exist.  here are five of my favorites in the ephemeral genre:

THE GATES
MAD HOMES
EVERYTHING BY JOHN GRADE
THE EVENT OF A THREAD
BEFORE I DIE
