Freedom Tube: Lost in X Space is constructed as a new-imagining of a pre-existing (and ongoing) conceptual project. Xpace’s Project Space acts as mediated container; moreover a detached and intimate private realm.

The drinking straw as everyday artifact, oft passing through most individuals’ lives as an afterthought, is imbued with a coded nuance of resistance to crip communities. In the de-contextualized space of the white cube, the viewer is invited sans interrupting force of public display, to freely explore and interact in any and all manner, including the object’s utilitarian purpose.
