Animal Static

The Kitchen
January - February 2019

Animal Static situates existential and meditativedrawings in the context of chaotic video works about a video, food, and beverage supply chain. The large-scale text drawings and seven videos were all activated by custom built and programmed motion sensors.

The corners of the gallery were rounded out to create a distorted space, suggesting and retail-like space – suggesting seamless back. Viewers could alter the playback pattern of videos by positioning their bodies in relation to the screen; the closer they were to the screen, the more mediated the video would become.

Projected light on each drawing was also activated motion sensors. In order to view the entire exhibition at once, more than one person would have to be in the room to activate each component, suggesting the full story is not available without multiple points of view.
