The Blue Book was installed in the Plimsoll Gallery at the Tasmanian College of the Arts in February, 2012. It was a two-part trapezoid space that interpenetrated the lower and the taller parts of the gallery. The shape of the envelope amounted to a split false-perspective room, so the viewer was given to expect one kind of space but experience another as they moved through the gallery. The scant arrangement of sculptures used Gestalt and other psychological principles to appeal to unconscious processes, so the configuration could cohere for the viewer for reasons they may not be able to explain.
