Show and Tell

Title: “Window Over the Kitchen Sink (Complete History of the Earth – Article: 2.9144617 × 10^26)”

Artist Statement: Windows always frame a space that is separated from our immediate space. By doing this “framing,” our view out of (or into) a window elicits a perceptual distortion of what the other side is actually like (i.e. doesn’t it look warmer out there than it actually is?)… Windows crop the view, obscure with glare, muffle the sound, block the smell, and in general, insulate from that environment.
     With “Window Over the Kitchen Sink (Complete History of the Earth – Article: 2.9144617 × 10^26)” I created a “window” that exaggerates the perceptual distortions that are inherited from a window-view.
