Some Assembly Required

Pablos Birthday Gallery, New York, NY

You’re not used to this work yet. Don’t feel bad. In a way you’re not supposed to get this new mode of making until it has become thoroughly digestible and as commonplace as the calendar on the wall. New technology always allows for new opportunities for art. It’s not your fault.

I was once told that my work is a shallow reflection of American middle class fixations. All art objects reflect the intentionality of their creator, but since my work is deeply rooted in cultural exploration, the shallowness of the work is really a reflection of the banality and shallowness of contemporary culture. I’m working with the language and tools provided to me by the American experience.
