Collapsed Column

A 300 mile long column of space is defined by a car on an ordinary road trip. Glass plates with a circle of adhesive are attached to the car one after the other every ten miles. As the car travels along the highway, this circle of adhesive moves through space creating a long column catching dust, insects, pollen and other material within the column of space. Every ten miles I replaced the glass plate with a new one, creating a series of flat surfaces that both represent and collapse the space I moved through. The entire 300 mile space became collapsed into 30 feet. Photographs of the insects, pollen and other microscopic materials on the plates are exhibited along with the plates themselves.
