An Interactive Slideshow, A Boxing Robot
“American Fistfight” evokes the early era of cinema filtered through arcade culture. I created an infinite loop of rudimentary moving image sequences produced entirely on screen-printed 35mm slides. Visitors can maneuver the ocean-themed images and wordplay-rooted phrases for themselves through a primitive robot connected to several vintage projectors, observing the results as they are displayed on the gallery wall…..
To Make Trash Beautiful.
A wall installation of screen printed landscapes on discarded cardboard. Each piece is mounted in a sturdy wood box frame w/ 3” depth, giving install a handmade & uniform appearance. All cardboard art floats evenly w/ edges of frame.
Aim of presentation is to elevate the materials to the esteemed level of the modern art object w/ a pervasive sense of beauty and joy. To the emerging generation of makers, DIYers, participants in the sharing economy the sentiment is deeply familiar: sustainability not as fashion or obligation, but as an unwavering optimism about what is beautiful and important in the world.
