In an 80 year old
400 Litres of latex were painstakingly, obsessively, painted onto an 8metre
x 30metre concrete floor.
In one section inflation valves, cut from bicycle inner tubes, were layered
into the coats. In another section a
10cm x 150cm steel beam, lift hooks attached, was immured in the latex.
Dry, the valves were inflated; the beam ratcheted toward the ceiling.
The skin of the floor respired. The cracks of settlement and age strained
into translucent veins
The simplest dwelling.
