found plastic medical slide racking (?), string, cable ties, gaffer tape, nails, floodlight
The appropriated plastic racks forming the key components of the MONUMENT project were assumed to have been - at one time - holders for medical slides.
Viewed from a distance the work resembles a maquette for some kind of modernist architectural facade, with its repetitive form and household floodlighting. Upon closer inspection, however, the more lo-fi DIY methology becomes jarringly apparent - the squares of gaffer tape, nails and string at odds with initial impressions of flawless functionality.
Whilst the square spaces within the plastic racks create ordered structures of light, as most building materials would, the angled junctures between them still bear clues as to their more unusual and macabre origins. Each rack is labelled with the name of the disease that would have been held within the spaces - to be examined, at a glance.
