Where Do We Go From Here?
An improvised installation
March 29 - April 20, 2018
Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery

Where Do We Go From Here? is a site for the contemplation of the confusion and frustration of not knowing how to proceed, both individually and collectively. The sensation of chaos and the presence of doubt is often a part of moving forward. Change—personal, political, physical and spiritual—is glacially slow. Even those sudden events that appear to have come out of nowhere are actually the result of the accumulation of much smaller changes. The process of intentional change is a repeated, relentless reorientation from each new moment. Where do we go from here? And from here? And from here?

In my studio, I slowly transform glossy magazines, advertisements, catalogs, political flyers and leftover exhibition postcards by hand. Through the repeated processes of cutting, folding, winding, twisting and curling, I subvert their intentions to entice consumers, voters and viewers. After distilling these mass media messages into repetitive sculptural objects, I embrace not-knowing where I am going by improvising their installation in the gallery.

The looming question, culled from songs in a variety of music genres, repeats over and over in a never-ending loop that emanates from the surrounding excess of print media. This repetition of the question Where Do We Go From Here? might render it meaningless. Or perhaps it might remind us that we are not alone in our doubt, frustration and anguish about the future. While the We and the Here is not the same for every human, I suggest that the question itself might be a fundamental part of the human condition.
