During the artist in residence programme in Graz, Austria, I explored the idea and use of communal space within the purpose-built Rondo Atelier complex, which was designed to foster aspects of private and communal living. I removed the table tennis table from the private AVL* common room in order to change the function of the room into an exhibition space. A light shines to indicate the former presence of the table. This space could be seen by passers by who were excluded from the exhibition space which was attended by artists, local dignitaries and invited media.
