thEM x Miranda July Badge
This piece forms part of a larger body of work entitled 'The Hallway' created for the Yokohama Triennial, 2008 at The Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, Japan.
"A 125 foot hallway lined with fifty wooden signs, hand-painted with text. As the viewer/participant walks down the seemingly endless hall, weaving between the signs, the text acts as an internal voice, “It’s too late to go back now, but the end seems far away…” The “you” in text realizes that you’ll be walking down this hallway for the rest of your life. And like life, the hall is filled with indecision, disappointment, boredom and joy – and it does end." - Miranda July
