1 to 5 to 1 / Finley Gallery
So here we have a gallery located in the stairwell of an apartment complex. The stairwell leads to the parking garage and back up to the inside of the complex. People who aren’t residents can view the gallery from the outside through a long run of windows . Being in Los Angeles this stairwell will be the resident’s primary breezeway between their internal living environment and their external life of the city. It’s my experience that these types of spaces often become invisible to us. They are the here to there, but what our focus is on really is the there rather than each space, rather than a continuum of unfolding moments, it’s what we’ve set our minds to and the rest is just invisible process and a lot of fantasy chatter to fill the gap in time. If we’ve experienced it enough as routine, our minds don’t seem to take notice unless there’s anomaly to the ordinary. So, enter 1 to 5 to 1 / Finley Gallery.
