Particle board and screws
Growing number of blocks
(Ongoing, 2007 - present)
The work consists of a large number of blocks, constructed in particle board following the same dimensions and variations as children's wooden play blocks.
As a performance, live constructions are constructed before an audience. Conrad lifts and stacks these oversized building blocks without any help or attributes: he climbs the structure itself to build it up. The resulting construction as a temporary modular sculpture.
There are rules to be followed
No attributes are used to mount the construction
The blocks are not affixed in any way
Each time a performance is made, new blocks have to be added
