were too many people and it was my first time in front of others, making
work. At the time, what I called the Carl Andre dilemma, of words and
practice, seemed our condition; so, I inscribed two circles on the wall,
using our largest salad bowl. Around one I wrote "I trust you"
and around the other "I take you." Then, at a table, I sat and
drew the same onto envelopes, using a ballpoint pen and a drinking glass.
Finally someone asked if he could have one, so I gave it to him, asking
that he leave his signature in exchange for the sculpture.
Four Walls, Brooklyn. Forty-nine people took envelopes and left their signatures.
Framed documentation in the collection of the artist. Project can be repeated.
