Installation & Performance at Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD
July 2017

Large printed fabric tapestries/backdrops, facades sporting pixelated googled images of wealthy homes, stacks of papers in a place a “data room” (images and written diary, mental ramblings, and daily observations stacked in this “data room” for visitors to pick through), video of printers analog-ing digital experience, and a pseudo lecture/performance reading the recorded essays and writings. A project presenting a case-study of a human in 2017 – revealing the inevitable contradictions of human thought, opinion, and affectively life. Illustrating daily experiences of the 21st century, the poetics through installation, writing, imagery, and an adjointed performance. Data Room is one piece of this.

The piece combines the inner digital and analogue worlds into one installation investigation. Internet as poetry – ripping open a computer, finding the body withhin - showing, debating, and begining a process of analog-ing and archiving a person's 21st Century experience. A discussion of our contemporary and daily reality. The artist plays both the artist-scientist-researcher and the subject. It is an experiential and participatory installation space and a presentation of language and poetics of the 21st century.
