Slam is a video work that speaks to the ritual of existing with architecture in an urban environment. Drywall, ubiquitous to new construction in the US landscape, is often used as patchwork to temporarily repair or renovate dwellings of the decaying city – quick fix. An intimate union is formed during the repeated process of maintenance and care throughout the relationship with the structure. Performance is used to make this point. The performer interacts with the construction both as a mended and damaged object.
