Not Present

Created from original unused tickets to Carnegie Hall in New York City this work  appears as a standard classification of historical ephemera although its real purpose is to speculate on unheard music and opportunities missed.

 Each seat in the plan that was unoccupied has a diagonal red line through it. Above the corresponding unused tickets is the legend indicating the exact date and time of the performance.

  The plans are silk screened onto felt matching the background colour of the tickets. Over time the fugitive dyes of the tickets and felt will fade in light in unison until only the black inks will remain.
