A 1:12 scale model of a work I made in 1997 wherein a mobile office trailer unit was brought into the gallery, and people were invited to come and do one day residencies wherein they would make my art. In this diminutive version, the Centre sits empty, save for a looping video from 2003 called 'Me On Neon' featuring a person underlit like a customised car, seemingly floating. The Centre sits on a three-volume collection of essays I wrote between 2003-2005.
