Idol Structures (2010-present)
Idol Structures focuses on the three-dimensional elements of the systems of advertising in public space while evading or obscuring the two-dimensional messages they carry. Through photography, sculpture and installation, the project seeks to subvert the commercialized messages of desire by redirecting the aesthetic to the place-holders and substrates that are normally subjugated by the primacy of two-dimensional text, graphics and images.
The project often plays between 2D and 3D interactions with the viewer as a means to subvert the commercial 2D messages. This work is driven by a personal resistance or protest against the influence and omnipresence of corporate messaging. Included in this examination are issues addressing the politics of public space, infrastructure, architecture, and contemporary art practices.
