This space intentionally left blank

For my month-long exhibition at The Box in Isla Vista Theater, I installed a sign reading “This space intentionally left blank” in the display case. Many hundreds of students cycle through the theater each day (M-F it functions as a lecture hall). Expectations of content are rejected; viewer input is prompted (at first mental, then literal by inviting passersby to add written content to the box). The first of three phases of the installation is documented below.
