56 Faces: How My Installation Turned Into a Performance Piece

If you go to Zeitgeist around 4pm - you will probably run into me. What was supposed to be an installation has turned into a performance piece. Every day, I get a phone call, letting me know how many pieces fell off the wall over night. Then I rearrange my day, head on down to Zeitgeist and try and reattach the pieces. I've cleaned the wall, removed all the loose particles, changed the adhesive and  I swear I did due diligence months in advance. I tested the adhesive, no problem. Turns out you have to test on the exact brick your art work is going to attach to, not some random brick you have at home. 


Well, sometimes things need to just be attached with a giant nail. After so much angst, I decided to do what I probably should have done in the first place. Take 56 mortar nails and eye hooks and secure my pieces to that D@#$ brick wall - no more raining men, no more freaked out patrons. And a better night's sleep for me. The show has been extended and the work will be up until February 2nd.
