Are you supposed to be here?

Handmade tiles are laid out to “decorate” the floor of a space with heavy foot traffic. The aim is to encourage social awkwardness and to force the innocent bystander to turn into an art viewer. In order for this person to walk across the room or move from point A to point B, one must walk across my hand crafted “artist” tiles, listen to them scrape against one another and wonder if they will break. The rules that govern hierarchies are questioned as  institutional structures are subtly re-organized.
And what if the tiles do break? Have you destroyed or contributed to the installation?
