BIG HEARTED PEOPLE NEED SHARP TEETH
EXHIBITION ON VIEW: SEPT 27 - NOV 2, 2019
RECEPTION: SEPT 27 6 - 8 PM
I experience surprise when people say “alternate reality” to describe my room because I believe everyone will exclaim “This is now!” as soon as they enter.
My room is a snapshot of our current reality.
The entire area is covered from top to bottom in funhouse mirrors that disorient and distort.
Glasses hang down the middle of the left side upon entry. Each pair changes the way the spectator sees either through color, kaleidoscope, safety, or shade. In some instances the participant becomes performative.
There are over five hundred jello heads that sweat ranging the color wheel spectrum. The crowd consists of many different ethnicities, a variety of occupations, and people with varying abilities.
The smells are craft store sweet. You can taste the manufactured flavors.
Try Try Again (film)
Art Grrrl blows up balloons until they pop.
“Tell Me” mirror
The only place in the room to see clearly, but still everything is reversed.
Echo Chamber Earphones
When the viewer wears the earphones and speaks, a chorus of deviating voices repeat whatever they say through a series of echoes.
The entire ceiling is covered in reflective balloons.
Balloons represent ideas,
faith + energy pressed
into a theory,
blow up in your face.
fart through the air,
grasp tight ideas,
tie up the ends--
slow-mo disappearing shrivels.
Both predictable and unpredictable
concept's complication stand ins.
bursting hot air,
first to take flight,
burn up like the Hindenburg
plethora of possibilities!
Self Care Chair
A place to relax and recenter.
BIG HEARTED PEOPLE NEED SHARP TEETH Book
The long explanation of the whole exhibition.
Glittering Rainbow Floor
The floor consists of thousands of swarovski crystals.
ALL! the spectrums. ALL!! the glitters. ALL!!! together but different.
WHAT’S MORE POLITICAL THAN A PARTY?
