Transparent Vinyl on Windows


These site-specific works are part of a series of transparent vinyl placed on various windows throughout the Portland area from 2010-2012. Originally commissioned for Reed College and Portland State University campuses as part of Reed Arts Week, phrases beginning with “This Window…” began appearing on a variety of windows in the region. Some of these windows were attached to buildings (and homes) that are no longer extant. One such window was part of the artist’s bedroom in The Artistery (RIP 2001-2011). The text there read “This window was a part of something”. The text in the images below reads “This window was handcrafted by Robert Morris in 1967”, “This window, when tapped on, produces sound”, and “This window has more agency than you”.
