Spatial Practice is a performance piece in which the performer uses the architectural mnemonic of Ars Memorativa in its most realized state. It is an installation piece consisting of common bedroom furniture (a bed, a chest drawer, a nightstand, a desk and a rug) that are painted pure white in order to deemphasize the colouring of the objects, with projections of shocking imagery overlaid and positioned accordingly onto the surfaces of the objects that act as mnemonic devices. Using these mnemonic devices, the performer attempts to recite π to 558 digits in accordance with the number of storage units integrated within the installed bedroom.
