By undoing a building ... [I] open a a state of enclosure which has been preconditioned not only by physical necessity but by the industry that proliferates suburban and urban boxes as a pretext for ensuring a passive, isolated consumer.
As the site of one of American consumerism’s largest expansions, the suburbs faced its greatest test in the 1970’s, when the postwar suburban fantasy collided with the reality of gas shortages, “stagflation,” and a growing unease with the (...)

David Watson has been a participant, observer and fan of New York City street parades. As an experimental musician he is drawn to the combinations of organization and disorder, sound and noise. This has led to him to making original pieces for three pipe bands in Hobart, Australia; a game piece in an empty storage facility in Los Angeles; and a "sonic progress" by a brass band through the city of Wellington, New Zealand. "Parade" is the original video iteration of these works and includes (...)

Recovered from the depths of the online art platform known as Google Art Project, João Enxuto and Erica Love’s Anonymous Paintings betray the ambiguities inherent in the experience of visual art in the age of digital culture. Deliberately selecting the censored cast-offs that are blurred due to copyright restrictions, their project emphasizes the condition of the art object today as one of contingency, while revealing Google Art Project’s elevation of mass culture as an expansion of corporate (...)

Shop for a product. Buy the product. Touch the product’s screen. When things do mostly what we wish, they become invisible. When they frustrate our expectations, they’re dispensed with. In a world of objects that exist to service our needs, when something fails to function, (mechanically, aesthetically, indefinitely) it runs the risk of exposing our dependence on it, its failure a potential rupture in the seamless flow of our psychological mastery over the things around us.
At least since (...)

As the subject of An American Family, one of television’s first reality shows, the Loud family exemplified the "Margaret Mead effect" of the mediation of experience, where representation begins to influence behavior. Followed everywhere by cameras for seven months, emotional cracks and fissures developed from the constant surveillance, which peaked when Pat Loud asked her husband for a divorce on TV. Serving as a vehicle to represent and reproduce the values of society, the family is central (...)

Traditionally highlighting the unique personality of a subject, the genre of portraiture is at odds with the increasingly disparate quality of our current experience of the self. The popularity of social media and instant communication has meant much more frequent interaction between individuals, which favors brevity and is often disconnected from place. Now being available "anytime" takes precedence over one’s location, as the disengagement of context (where and how we encounter one (...)

Largely forgotten until the mid-seventies when they resurfaced in the Library of Congress archives, the color photographs of the Farm Security Administration/ Office of War Information (1939-1943) document the later period of FDR’s New Deal, an ambitious series of government programs designed to address the brutal effects of the Great Depression on the social and economic fabric of 1930’s America. While the Library’s archive of black and white depression-era photographs is more familiar and (...)
