The Yellow Wallpaper is a short gothic novel by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. In the story the protagonist is confined in a room and told she must rest. In the pattern of the paper she begins to imagine a hostile other: a doppelgänger who is also confined. The protagonist comes to identify with this spectral figure and eventually attempts to set her free by digging her out. This performative installation imagined a strip of Gilman's yellow wallpaper coming loose in a public space.

Section, woodblock and linocut print, suspended with helium balloons, 50 mm x 15 meters
