Lawrence Weiner Recreations

Lawrence Weiner famously wrote of his work:

The artist may construct the piece;
the piece may be fabricated;
the piece need not be built.

Weiner presented his works as ideas and left the decision about whether or not to "fabricate" the works to the collector or institution exhibiting them. I have recreated Weiner's works both as language (text on the wall or floor) and as physically "built" works.
