This Container Isn’t Big Enough: Hello There Friend (Queens, NY), 2004DVD15 minute video

This Container isn’t Big Enough is a continuation of an ongoing thematic project that began in 2001 in Portland, Oregon and Malmo, Sweden. For his project at Socrates, Fletcher walked through the neighborhood with local resident Raymond Denson who selected small objects found on the ground to be displayed in his hand. The artist filmed Raymond’s hand opening again and again, each time revealing an object – a found sculpture. The result is a compelling montage of images that are site-specific and oddly beautful.
