PARKING
2014
Installation Game


view documentation



PARKING is a site-specific installation game shown at the Roasters gallery in Marfa, Texas in the summer of 2014. Visitors to the gallery look at the artwork from their car, a setup comparable to the way a drive-in audience watches a movie from their vehicles. Appropriately, the gallery is located on a site in Marfa previously held by car dealerships. In this participatory work, visitors to the gallery park their cars successfully in the front lot in order to have a snapshot of their vehicle added to a scrolling display projected on the front window of the gallery. The full size display showcases a history of all the vehicles of previous visitors.
