Philosophically, politically, and conceptually, I’m pursuing forms of resistance to and negation of particular qualities that mark our lives – most notably its constant demands for reason and accompanying fast pace. Absurdity, play, arbitrariness, randomness, the non-rational, the non-logical, and slowness are important.
Aesthetically, I have tendencies toward a minimal and subtle visual aesthetic, poetic language, minimalism of ideas and vocabulary, quietness, stillness, low chroma, the water, landscape, abstraction, the sublime.
My research has been on situation-specificity as site-specificity, ontologies and blurred boundaries, and embodied experience.
Lots of images in addition to the words.
Other recent work to give a broader sense of my creative output:
I’ve organized and curated an exhibition called Yoko Ono Fan Club which is another way of forwarding and exploring a constellation of concepts that overlaps heavily with the aforementioned. The submissions include a range of performance documentation, objects, manifestos, wordplay, installations, scores, instructions, and performances, and challenge boundaries among ideas of what’s serious, silly, absurd, everyday, or surreal. The show is on view through March 29, 2014, in the Visual Studies Gallery – 2nd floor of the CFA.
