This work is a comical reflection on notions of art in time and space.  Carrying the weight of philosophical texts about this theme on her head, Proctor interacts with and comments upon the university as learning environment.

Proctor is clearly marked as an outsider as she goes about her walk through campus.  The work captures both the unpredictable nature of the balancing act and the reaction encountered along the journey.
