In Translation exhibition at Atlanta Contemporary Art Center
JAN 10 - MAR 08, 2014
During this exhibition I explore the idea of "studio-as-lab," and continually modify my installation Ligatures, Page One, Or: Nathan Sharratt's Modern Prometheus. A new date is stamped into the wall each day that I alter the work. The titles reflect the state of the work on a particular day.
One connecting thread that recurs throughout both installations is the process of extrusion. Candy dots are extruded through a pastry bag; a 3D printer extrudes plastic layer by layer to create form and meaning; words are removed from Frankenstein leaving behind mesa-text that extrudes new meaning.
