Nothing on You is a full room installation in which a wooden plank floor/platform is installed six inches above the present floor. Upon the entrance to the room, small soap bubbles emerge from missing knots in the floor. There is a constant growth and loss in the small piles of bubbles that build up accompanied by the clean scent of soap. Corners, cracks, gaps and nooks are mysterious by nature. Similarly the cleansing power of soap and its ability to grow from and return to nothing has a mysterious and possibly spiritual quality. The bubbles make the knot holes into portals alluding to the possibilities below.
