LOOKING AT THAT 2020
WHICH I DON’T
WANT TO SEE
Digitally Projection-Mapped Abstract Motion Graphics Animations on Organza and my front porch window.
6 x 10 ft, Running Time Variable
Playing nightly in the front window of my Chicago home during the COVID-19 shut-down, this work became a playlist of animations made over the course of several weeks of quarantine as a way of processing and communicating the ever-changing and extremely heightened emotional state experienced by so many in this moment of multiple life-threatening
global crises. An ongoing visual anxiety log, it was an effort to transform a state of enclosure and uncertainty into an opportunity for shared vulnerability, mutual introspection, and socially distanced intimacy.
This work was part of “Art-In-Place,” a show put on by CNL Projects and Terrain Exhibitions, Chicago, IL.
