Socrates Sculpture Park

J. Walsh III Patrick

Exhibition: Float 11, 2011

Untitled, 2011


For this performance, Walsh has cast a backpack from his high school years in aluminum, and plans to drive a steamroller over the bag, forcing the object into the earth at Socrates Sculpture Park. Inspired by the park's former title as a landfill, Walsh's performance creates a setting in which heavy machinery interacts with memory to produce an object set for erasure.
