John’s stuff

John's Stuff

A homeless man named John is invited to live in the artist community »Institute for Social Research«. After two weeks he is suddenly gone. His left-behind things serve as my sculpture until he wants them back. By notes left on a street light, he stays informed about the current exhibition location of his stuff.
