480 Square Feet of Los Angeles*

Bricks covered with knit material, 2010-2022

The brick outline on the floor that is half inside, half outside the gallery demarcate the 480 SQ FT domestic space where I spent the majority of my time during the shut down. * The title “480 Square Feet of Los Angeles” is a nod to a 1986 cult movie, 40 square meters of Germany, which is set in 40 m2 apartment unit in Hamburg, Germany. Ironically, my 480 square feet of voluntary pandemic confinement is roughly equal to 40 square meters.
