A Softer Place to Fall is an installation that documented the transfer of light from two of the main windows in the room. I thought of this room as a space of entertainment in the original home so I used the language of the phonograph and sound. I marked the intersections of the window moldings with the passing of light on the floor from day to day to create a drawing that was then transposed onto the gallery walls in string. This string much like the light coming and going would be collected by handmade phonograph machines. Also in the space were phonograph horns that were used as speakers playing an old english prayer over the room. The rooms floor was also covered in pine shavings made from my traditional hand plane.
