Through video works, photo, and graphic sequences the exhibition Fragments of the Acceleration explores the atomic origins of what has been referred to as “the Great Acceleration of the Anthropocene” – and presents a fragmentary view of the current epoch in which we live.
The project Landscapes of Absence explores ethical issues around the use of ISIS propaganda images within the media. The project uses images drawn from eight beheading incidents disseminated through ISIS media outlets. In the work, the dehumanized propaganda image is erased leaving only the landscape and the absence of image as a metaphor for the larger issue of the absence of reliable reporting in areas under ISIS control. The project includes a series of eight 22.5”x30” descriptive print works about the beheading incidents, four 40”x60” landscape mural prints, a single channel video, and a poster poster publication with information about the project.
A Call To Halt is an installation and critical timeline of the Euromissiles Crisis and the nuclear abolition movement in the United States from 1977-1987. The installation includes a reenactment of the 1982 Nuclear Freeze Referenda, in which Wisconsin was the first state to put nuclear disarmament policy to a popular vote.
