The Custodian's Closet
delayed live video mixed media installation
8' x 6' x 6'
The Custodians Closet consists of a 6' x 6' structure placed in the corner of a room. One door, which seems to disappear into the wall, is adorned with a women's restroom sign, the other door is open and invites the viewer into a custodians utility room.
Within are the usual item that might be stored in such a closet: cleaning supplies and accessories, paper supplies, old computer equipment, the custodians sweater, a coffee cup.
Out of place in the room is a chair facing the wall. In the wall is a hole, and if the viewer sits in the chair and looks through the hole, they will see a video monitor playing a time delayed live video feed of the inside of the closet .
The viewer will see themselves exploring the installation, sitting down and looking into the hole - in effect, the viewer becomes their own voyeur.
