HD Video/ performance/intervention, Phnom Penh Cambodia.

For Lightlines i created an installation of found mirrors in Phnom Penh's "white building". For this work I directed a group of residents to slowly manipulate handheld mirrors from their own homes, reflecting sunlight inward from open stairwells at the ends of a perpetually dark hallway. the event, lasting about 4 hours, invited all residents to "draw" with reflected natural light, resulting in a space momentarily activated and transformed.
