How to put up a shelf (I)

By  Joe Hancock 2011
text / audio / performance / installation I videoed myself putting up a shelf in my studio, and then reviewed the footage, recording all the decisions, no matter how small, that I could see myself making. Taking a Decision to comprise a Question and an Answer e.g. Q: Do I want that? + A: Yes. = D: I want that. ...I wrote what I believed were the questions I was asking during the process, e.g. ‘Is it level?’, ‘Is the drill set to the correct speed?’ The resultant list of 553 questions became the first part of my open-ended preoccupation with shelves.
