"Elle's Worth" - as interior billboard installation or digital projection
"Arm War" + "Spade's" - as exterior billboard installation or digital projection
My current project involves coring through art periodicals with the intent to obscure the distinctions between the fashion industry and the art world. The periodical ArtForum is a "container" of such dichotomies. I've constructed a tool that cores through the magazine rendering an indiscriminate sampling of its contents. By reconfiguring (displacing) the "samples" I develop new meaning through image intersections. The art/fashion paradigm is thus blurred. I propose that these constructions, which currently serve as models, become billboards or digital projections that adorn the facades of high-end fashion industry retail outlets.
