Lives and works
As I fabricate my works I try to penetrate the means of the language. The somatic language I use is based on metonymy. By gesture of appropriation the objects are denied their ‘ordinary’ meaning accelerating them into a state of flux, here stipulative and persuasive definitions render the object or text visible within a new contextual framework that brings nostalgia as a pathway to optimism. In this instance image and word is tracked back to a source in order to fulfill its original function. I am disturbing their resolution in order to create a stronger and a more accurate one which can encompass new meta-meanings, resulting in the aftermath a disruption of the mainstream ideologies.
But what I actually do?
I feed 200 lizards with some Uranium-235
I purchase a 787 Dreamliner in order to not give a single interview
I hijack master brand names.
And this kind of stuff.
