Metal slats make their way through the space, copying, infiltrating, supported and supporting. The structure that they form does not aim to generate a center of attention, but invites the viewer to adopt different perspectives. There is a power in bringing things together, bundling, collecting. The structure becomes the carrier of its own footnotes.

“When she was planning the book that ended up as Three Guineas, Virginia Woolf wrote a heading in her notebook, “Glossary”; she had thought of reinventing English according to her new plan, in order to tell a different story. One of the entries in this glossary is heroism, defined as “botulism.” And hero, in Woolf’s dictionary, is “bottle.” The hero as bottle, a stringent reevaluation. I now propose the bottle as hero. Not just the bottle of gin or wine, but bottle in its older sense of container in general, a thing that holds something else.” The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin, 1986
