I am currently working on a series of interactive video sculptures titled Small Humans. The sculptures are about technological folly and feature small pluggable LCD video screens.
The small LCD screen plugs into the sculptures with a standard 3 prong electrical plug (they are bright yellow).
To accompany the series I am producing a number of digital C prints based on the videos.
This work is supported by generous
grants from Canada Council for the Arts and the City of Chicago.
First of the Small Humans pieces features a large (48"x80") digital print of a tin toy robot.
The second Small Humans sculpture features a wired log coated with a very heavy coat of clear epoxy and a video of myself cutting down a tree which I filmed in Tennessee.
A big glossy purple dildo. This piece is about sex. Well, what sex can become when taken to the limits of the synthetic: folly.
A big glossy pill. Still need to make the video.
The particular American folly of gun ownership. A 96"x36" digital print of a toy machine gun featuring videos that reference the DC beltway sniper.
