Spatial Practice is an installation in which the performer uses the architectural mnemonic of Ars Memorativa in its most realized state. It is an installation 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 or striking imagery overlaid and positioned accordingly onto the surfaces. The installation acts as a mnemonic device, assisting the performer in storing significant sums of rote information. In its inaugural showing, the installation was successully used to recite π to 558 digits.
