Chris Larson based this architectural installation on a narrative he created titled, “Mother Bellmay,” which is about a woman who moved from the country to the city, where she built a red barn skyscraper to live in. She lived on the second floor and built an elaborate system of tubes, valves, and pumps to connect her body to the upper and lower floors of the barn. The installation is constructed of timber, plaster, rubber, rope, cotton, leather, and paint.
