Artist Statement:
As I stepped off the airplane into the terminal, I was excited and egar to see what lies before me, after traveling into a new hemisphere waiting to experience a different culture. What I was immediately assaulted with was a familiar “golden arches” along with more logo recognizing.
Unique cultures have been overtaken by large corporations who’ve created a homogeneous visual landscape. There seems to be nothing unique anymore.
My piece addresses this very landscape, with familiar logos running throughout the piece. The figures are flipped to graphically depict distance and “far away places.” One can never know what was lost if one never seen otherwise.
