Drawing on Rooms, May 1996.

Unbound yellow and iron oxides and the upper floor of the building, Gallery ARDT, Leichhardt, Sydney.

"... I then drew the shape of the red oxide shape, as it would appear from the centre of the second room of the installation, on the wall between them. This shape was filled with yellow oxide powder. A protrusion of red from the red room could be seen in the yellow, as well as from the red room. On the evening of the opening, people walked onto the red drawing, got red oxide powder on the soles of their shoes, and walked it over the floor which the oxide had represented, so that the whole gallery floor was covered in red footprints."
