I was thinking a lot about creating a physical space, characters and objects that didn't really replicate the many incarnations of my website, but actually was of it.
Nothing is placed arbitrarily.
I love cables and wires, and I think it's funny and unnerving to combine warm, cute things with the mechanical and cold. Everything looks hand-made. I'm not hiding anything that way. I'm letting you in on the secret, revealing the connections.
Nothing is arbitrary in how I choose to organize the scene, however the objects and characters sort of are. That's why I use and integrate found objects.
I like the idea of demons and angels that come in ridiculous forms.
Here we see a family of sheep that are about to drop their lamb into the arms of a sort of rabbit-princess. It's for the lamb's own good, but it's also a very sad scene.
We have a cluster of angels watching over them, so we feel better about it.
I thought it would be funny to take a white rabbit, make it a blonde and create a doorway between her legs and hang a doorbell from her nose.
The sad frog meditates with Scrooge McDuck's magic dime in his mouth.
I used these elements in a performance titled, Time Capture Archive, about a flawed, heart-broken, time-traveling anthropologist.
The characters in my work are often depicted in pairs. One helps the other from another liminal space.
I think in this case it mirrored how the website mirrored the landscape I had made.
