Painting for a Specific Floor is a collaborative work that explores the ideas of horizontality and fluidity, as well as surfaces and topography. The work defies the preconception of the work of art as an object meant solely to be looked at. It also challenges the supremacy of the visual sense over other senses, betting on a direct experience with the work; an encounter between the spectator and the work, the piece and the place it inhabits.
