What possessed me to make such a complicated installation out of town?
I wonder. The title, Hotel Module refers to a hotel room I stayed in, when I ran away from home at sixteen. I'd taken my passport and all sorts of belongings. I was a naughty and disturbed kid and this act got me into a lot of trouble (I was found). I stayed in the room devising plans to get me out of the situation I was in. There was justified anger but also a lot of false illusion. In this show I was thinking about all that past baggage I still carried around with me, and the symbols of that.

More trouble

Top Found postcard with plastic and hot glue
Centre Repetitive texter on blotting paper (site specific work)
Bottom Detail Glass beaker, water, styrofoam, light
I used a lot of different coloured detergents and liquid soaps in the show, Playing on their scents and different pearlised colours.
A factor of my shows has to do with experimenting with putting objects out into the gallery environment. I am constantly learning how to install, always trying.
