The Death of Analogies
MFA Thesis Install/Performances, Khyber Arts Center, Halifax.
Analogies have been supplanted by the certitudes of the digits. Similarities and resemblances are no longer currency. The digital fingers their way to you. The technology is ingested. Utilizing a mixture of hi and lo tech in simple set-up situations, the ingestion of the technology is rendered almost edible.
Materials: stethoscopes, amplified slide projectors and mechanical cows, minuscule TV monitors, ashtray speakers, intercoms, vinyl pellets and wired philosophical texts.
A CD by the same name was published in 1999, it contains audio work from 1996 but none of the sounds from the installation appear on the CD. However the photographs on the CD cover are documents of the install/performances.
