Something is Missing
MetadataShow full item record
Something is Missing is an installation that incorporates drawing, a security camera, audio, appropriated objects and built sculptural elements using common construction materials and clay. This work is rooted in notions of failure and empathy. Drawings of organs float as if desperate to inhabit imaginary bodies, a security camera that resembles an examining tool of a medical practitioner fails to fix or function and walls fall short of completing a room. This room as a whole becomes a metaphor for a stage without actors. The thesis body of work that comprises Something is Missing is a meant to serve as what I call a dysfunctional affect machine that opens cross-sensory possibilities and induces empathetic feelings in the viewer. The aim of this machine is to pose questions rather than suggest answers to the contemporary predicament of being bodies in a post human era. This work is also meant to summarize a sort of contemporary anxiety, which I feel I participate in both as an artist and citizen of the World.
