A new work The Issosymetry; I miss you will be exhibited in North Carolina, one night only in Chapel Hill.
The artwork was conceived as a response to the increasing displacement of masses and the refugee crisis as symptoms of global economies and inequality.
Migration, is often coupled with a split from loved ones and familiar environments, many have felt this estrangement to be difficult and lonely. In experiencing it myself I decided to re-contextualize it with the advent of technology that has made migrations become both less distant and mechanically digitized. The encoded streams are transport systems for feelings, a translation and mechanized version of emotion. Communication systems become elementary tools for the prosperity of global economics and transmitters of an increasingly sophisticated personal messaging system. The message “I miss you” belted out by Brian Mcmahon the lead singer of Slint, a seminal rock band of the 90’s, is a universal message, it relates in a general way to my experiences, and it relates specifically to all those who have left someone behind.
