this: a contemporary situation

This: A Contemporary Situation was an installation utilizing the language of painting in order to create an immersive environment. This: A Contemporary Situation was a large, room sized painting of an “image” that contained a stadium in an urban landscape and that landscape viewed from with in a modern apartment. Viewers could literally and figuratively enter into this immersive image in numerous ways. Central to This: A Contemporary Situation was the stadium, created out of ‘up-cycled’ shipping pallets, cardboard, paper, masking tape and acrylic paint surrounded by mural scale painting that wrapped around the entire gallery. Additionally, throughout the duration of the exhibition visitors were encouraged to construct effigies of themselves, or “selfies” out of recylced paper, tape, wire and acrylic paint and add them to the stadium in order to help populate the stadium.
