My upcoming show builds on the philosophical view of objects as a place of discovery about how we perceive reality. It is a play on object-oriented programming, which (0) models the real world by defining objects, then (1) makes the objects interact to create a response.
You, the viewer, are invited to run the “program”. Approach the canvas as browser window, decide if the defined interaction of human and natural objects in the landscape models the “real” world.
The work builds on my investigation into the ways we’ve trained ourselves to ignore functional, utilitarian objects. Look past them, magnify whatever natural beauty we can find beyond, above or around.
Objects in the Landscape opens December 29, 2022 at The Art Station in Fernie, BC. It runs through January 2023, ends on the eve of the Lunar New Year.
