Humidity comprised several hundred moulded plaster bricks embedded with fragments of plaster dyed in brilliant colours. The bricks were assembled into a freestanding wall so as to create a painterly surface. Over the course of the exhibition I moved the bricks around, for example to block half the windows of the gallery. The changing humidity levels of the air were visible in the slow seepage of the dyes – the more moisture in the air, the more brilliant the colours.

Eliza’s Letters, a series of folded oil pastel drawings, was exhibited in the adjacent gallery.

Humidity was exhibited in 1995 at Pendulum Gallery, Sydney.
