What I'm Bringing To The Table

Countless subway cars and all I see are advertisements for Seamless® and Squarespace®. Trendy tabletop photography; template driven design. Their campaigns bore me; I want something more than a display of neatly arranged items on a table. One night in the studio I opened up a large foldout table. Around the room I spread out items collected on recent adventures. Instead of using Google® and Photoshop® to construct an image I opt for an overhead camera and physical objects. Having to collage in the natural world slows down the process and in turn choices in configuration are more deliberate. I needed a language that wasn’t copypasta; that wasn’t slide to interact. It had to break things down, build them back, and function on multiple layers of visual communication. In the video series What I’m Bringing To The Table disparate everyday objects are brought together to point to contradictory meanings implied by their use in the art studio and office environment.
