In-person Event

Work: Detroit


Open to the public
Free of charge

Location: Work • Detroit
March 8 — April 22010

Statement: My work is a series of sculptures that serve as a biography of the neo-pastoral culture that is the American Midwest. As a nation that is deeply embedded in technological infrastructure and practice, the notion of an escape to a bucolic ideal has been surpassed by our access and manipulation of the surrounding landscape and its counterparts. This work illustrates a form of technological determinism that is defining the middle landscape of the 21st century by using both manual and manufactured processes to propagate a new discourse of beliefs within America.
