Prototype - September 26th - October 31st at Buoy Gallery
Opening reception Friday the 26th, 6 to 9pm
Here is some early writing on the subject:
This “linear time” thing has always seemed dubious to me. Our rotation around the sun creates a cyclical, three dimensional sequence of changing events, not a linear progression of time. What if everything in the universe went to absolute zero, no atomic motion? Wouldn’t time stop? What would Otzi the Iceman have to say about this?
Right Now I’m making things that embody specific motions, gesture and traditions by transposing ancient (neolithic, paleolithic and otherwise deeply BCE) forms with new, highly manufactured materials: Poly Vinyl Chloride, Stryofoam, Nylon, Flourocarbon, High Density Polyethylene, etc. etc. These petrochemicals speak of a complex Here and Now and will last for tens of thousands of years. By merging these industrial materials with deeply traditional human forms the resulting objects hover in a non-time space.
