Ladder Burn – Closing Performance for Ladder day

Ladder Burn sm

Performance for the closing of Ladder Day, my show at the SCRAP Re:Vision Gallery in Portland, Oregon in May – June of 2011. This piece is a coda to my other video: I carried a ladder sculpture (knitted out of paper yarn and stiffened with white glue) for four blocks as it slowly crumpled, and then burned it. Many thanks to Jaye Harris for camera work, and to Neil Mahoney, Thea Morton and Kara McPhillips for helping me put out the fire.
