In an old industrial building in the Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan, a drywall ribbon,18 meters long, connects the entrance to the exit undergoing organic deformations to assume different functions. It is at the same time counter, block of seats and air duct. What is usually hidden, it is instead exposed. The restroom, located in the forefront, has a mirrored wall, giving passersby a view of the silhouettes of people unconsciously intent on a real performance. A humorous and irreverent game, perfect for New York mundanity.
