International Symposium for Electronic Arts in Vancouver

Materialism Antagonism


A video work of mine will be exhibiting at ISEA 2015 in Vancouver the work titled Materialism Antagonism:

The work consists of a scale model sized crystal luxury dinner table that is deconstructed in the time span between 8 to 10 minutes. The sculpture kinetically degrades via electronic amplification and dissonant sound frequency emitted from a vintage 70’s organ. The work provides a critique of the influential class and its relation to the deterioration of democratic process. Antagonism being an instrument to counter this relationship amongst the disaffected.

The sound that accompanies this work is an improvised performance by the artist that used sound to generate movement and deterioration of the structures. Stephen Hendee friend and colleague will be a collaborator in designing and producing the sound.

The video work can be seen here:



The exhibition in Vancouver was made possible by a jackpot grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
