REBUILDING THE WALL (2007 - present)
This one room, one door, one window structure in the Mojave Desert inspired much of my work. It has slowly decayed over the years from the abuse of bullets and target practice. On one particular visit I found that the window was just a gaping hole, so I stacked the surrounding bricks to form the original height of the walls. Then I closed off the doorway and crawled out the window, giving future visitors the choice and satisfaction of knocking it down in order to enter. I repeat these actions every time I pass through this particular place in the desert.
