To do

The installation presents a series of 1440 photographs cataloging every object I owned over 10 years. The project exposes the complexity and the absurdity of our relationship with material goods.

“Floor to ceiling, wall to wall, these everyday objects do appear to take on a life of their own, and the exhibit is a fascinating (and visually arresting) peek into the psyche and unique perspective on the artist’s life. Wow.” Jonathan Fox - The River Reporter

From mundane to anecdotal, each object becomes a subject of its own, its mere function transcended by its isolation and dramatization in front of a red backdrop. The exhaustive number of objects presented in the piece betrays the enormity of the accumulation symptomatic of Western consumerism. Where are all these objects coming from? Where will they go once they've outdated their function?
Shown at the CAS Arts Center, NY.
