TNG 557 (Lucy)

The following describes events that took place each day in the gallery space from March 22nd to April 1st, 9am to 5pm 2006. Upon arrival to the Gallery I ate my bowl of granola (banana and yogurt) and then proceeded to Project: TNG 557 located in the main space. Utilizing repetition and routine as strategies I use my body to roll, fold, prop, unroll, unfold, lift, pull, shift, drag, lean, transform, manipulate etc the elements found in the gallery. The items are: seven solid copper rods, seven solid steel rods, seven beeswax tarps, pallet and a crate full of dulse (edible seaweed from New Brunswick). At noon I would take a lunch break and eat a stew I had made in the gallery the first day I arrived. After lunch I would return to Project: TNG 557 until 5 pm. I repeated this routine until I left on Saturday evening on April 1st. A video documenting the activities remained as accompaniment to the material in the gallery.
