Interrupted Idealism, 2013
cement, string, photo mounted on board
This piece is a visual allegory of the journey from idea into form. It is reflective of the often frustrating and unexpected ways that a concept is given shape in reality, and how it’s travel from the interior of one’s mind to the exterior and perceivable world can introduce radically different outcomes than one could have expected.
Protruding from the photograph is a length of string, which connects to a cement balloon. The usage of cement negates the usual function of a balloon (to be filled with helium, to fly), thus rendering the object useless and impractical. It has achieved its materialization outside of the abstract realm of the photograph, but in an entirely unexpected and ineffectual way.
Hi! I started an alternate Tumblr, to make use of the hundreds of screenshots I have compiled over the years while watching movies on my computer. Click on the link above to check it out :)
The Living Room, 2013
projected video, white couch, bowl of popcorn, tv remote, beer bottle, table
In “Living Room,” I explore the dynamics and possible implications of the medium of television advertisements. Projected into the staged room is a mash-up of contemporary commercials, selected with a focus on those broadcast during the past few Super Bowls. The editing is intended to encourage viewers to question the sorts of ideas and ways of thinking that are propagated in the minds of individuals after longterm exposure to overtly sexual, melodramatic, painfully biased and stereotypical imagery.
