The Screening Room, 2023

The Screening Room, 2023


A pop up artist’s book/model of the conceptualized room for the screening of my animations, it also becomes the protagonist of the animation involving the process of the making of the artist’s book. The Screening Room functions both as a complete artist’s book with 3 pop-up pages, and as a model for a life-size, comfortable library and viewing room for videos.


To begin with, I photographed around Governors Island, both inside buildings and their facades, and the surrounding landscape from various angles, through changes in weather and light over time. From these images, I assembled a room, a library of rare books and book art housed in built-in bookcases, furnished with a monitor hidden within the centerpiece cabinet that pops up into the room. During my Transborder Art Fellowship Studio Residency on Governors Island in June 2023, I was fortunate to find the essential piece of furniture for this centerpiece of my project situated right on the main floor of the house. The rest of the room is furnished with similar comforts – a built in couch with library table, a step stool to reach books, and a side bookcase to round out the design of the room. The hallway is hidden behind a door that blends into the wall. Through a window, the exteriors are imagined from the entrance of a major residence and the ticket window of the old cinema found nearby.
