J. Patrick Walsh III

    Exhibition: Float 11, 2011

    Untitled, 2011

    For this performance, Walsh has cast a backpack from his high school years in aluminum, and plans to drive a steamroller over the bag, forcing the object into the earth at Socrates Sculpture Park. Inspired by the park's former title as a landfill, Walsh's performance creates a setting in which heavy machinery interacts with memory to produce an object set for erasure.
