Open Windows (Installation) is an extension of Open Windows (Postcard) as a spatial installation. Made with 1/8" wood square dowels, Open Windows (Installation) exists as a wall relief, replicating the windows from my apartment with a text engraved on the lower right shelf which contextualizes the performance when selected individuals were invited to open their windows around the globe at 10:00 AM EST.
