Proceed with Caution
The nature of forced constraint, is an uncomfortable, undesirable condition. In Proceed with Caution, a room is divided into six unequal spaces with several rows of stacked mono-filament lines. Lines are stretched across the room in perpendicular angles, creating a web of coloured blue-green, dark green and gold. The almost invisible fishing lines, amplify the feeling of disorientation and entanglement as the observer moves within the space.
