EAT ME, DRINK ME, an installation
EAT ME, DRINK ME, an installation, is on view as part of the invitational show ADAPTATIONS: LAND at The Drawing Room Annex, SF beginning October 1, 2022. This installation explores the sensorial and conflicting experience of today’s food consumption and waste, at once seductive and repulsive. Sequential, rhythmic photography allows me to combine painterly elements with a sculptural format. Each one of the works in this installation invites the viewer to reflect on the visual beauty and subliminal seductiveness of the foods we consume – even of the trash we collect. I find a striking graphic similarity between the rhythmic patterns of this imagery and that of the representations of many of our physiological systems.
Mixed media, sequential digital photographic print on hanging canvas, 78” x 59”.
On a hot summer weekend I went “fishing” for street garbage with my camera. I then recomposed these images - my own form of recycling - as an attempt to reveal the underlying beauty of rejected objects, the horrifying virtuosity of a cascade of shiny materials and colors.
