Ground Games, April 1997.

Spatial drawing in newspaper and the Watch This Space building in Alice Springs.

"Ground Games is an installation in which the space between ceiling and roof of the gallery building is 'remade' on the floor in newspaper. The building of Watch This Space has a double saw-toothed roof, and the ceiling space is defined by the triangular shape above the square and rectangular shapes of the plaster walls. In the first room this space is visible. In the second room, it is hidden by the plaster ceiling. When the triangular ceiling space is remade on ground level, it has the same scale and shape as the ceiling space above, but the location and material it is made of, is altered."
