Vinyl Lettering, a Floor, a Ceiling Dimensions Vary, 2007

It asks the interpreter to do the ridiculous, paint a surface so many times that the thickness of each layer extends to touch the surface it faces in opposition.

Viewers automatically follow the instruction given by the chair itself and sit down. Upon standing they take with them an infrathin layer of colored paint. Sitting then in the other chair that layer of paint combines with the paint on the chair to become imperceptibly pinker.
