Too Willingly Include

Too Willingly Include, is a photographic installation and performance wherein I incorporated the visitor in the development of the work. Before the opening I put different photographs in one hundred glass jars. The white jar lids were hanging with white twisted masonry line attached to a freestanding wooden structure. During the opening reception, I worked with the visitors to fill the jars with objects and find the correct lid. I let the participants screw the jar onto the hanging lid. After the jar was let go the weight of the jar would untwist the masonry line and the jar would spin around for a few minutes until coming to a stop, where it would stay for the run of the exhibition.
