an intermediate intervention in three parts. a collaboration with thomas gardner.

a breath before dying (part 1): at the garage, an ancillary structure, a considered demolition involving specific technique and deliberate means. a lifting of the lap siding, wedged opem for air and light. demolished, but slowly, hastingly. a measured and prolonged coming apart; an arrested development.

leaning to stasis (part 3): the original structure, seperated from its appendage, is pulled, racked to one side and held there at the precipice in suspended animation.

"...that most terrible silence in human conflict, when the outcry of terror or pain is stifled in exertion; the first sound of fear is in drawing, not expelling, the breath." -Sir Charles Bell (1774-1842)
