The idea of motels and what they entail has always fascinated me. A temporary stop during a road trip, a place to do what you might not want to or can't do at home, motels have a constant flux of different characters moving in and out, sleeping night after night in the same bed, watching the same tv. I'm interested in the narratives that exist in these places: the mystery, drama, and even the mundanity.
Room 8 is a photograph of my sculpture TV Room, taken outside on my rooftop in the early evening. A glowing tv can be seen inside the room. This was the first sculpture I made that incorporated video. The open window and door give the feeling of a warm summer night.
