Video: Sarah Hobbs creates hotel-room-sized portraits in installation “Overpacked” at W Midtown

Screen shot 2012-12-20 at 12.58.52 AM

The imaginary guests of Sarah Hobbs’ “Overpacked,” an installation at W Atlanta-Midtown hotel, unpacked their psychological baggage all over their hotel rooms. Gently mocking but ultimately sympathetic, Hobbs’ transformation of three hotel rooms into a survivalist’s overreadiness, a homesick guy’s man cave and a germophobe’s SWAT efforts to ward off any possible contamination suggested that you can never get away from yourself.

The installation is gone, but Felipe Barral’s video provides a tour. –Catherine Fox
