So I did a little phone work and have appointments set up to take pictures of hotel rooms and hospital rooms. Here are a few hotel rooms from earlier this week. I’m currently obsessed with hosptials ’cause I was in one not long ago (no big deal) and I’ve always been fascinated by how hotels offer an assembly-line facsimile of domesticity. Both spaces are creepy, and are more alike than I think people would like to think. Function fades under the sheer weight of the formality/formalism of the spaces.
These eventually could be a roomful of prints, though I’m also thinking of taking a lot of shots and just unloading them onto a video loop for an endless uncanny slideshow of Institiutionality.
