Reading the newspaper and watching television are daily, mundane events, with images appearing in an incongruous mixture of toxic photographs, deadly headlines, frivolous advertisements and commercials, and a final pleading request to at least recycle! The dichotomy of these unending images and curiously opposing thoughts creates a mixture of humor, disbelief, guilt, and horror, in part creating the postmodern psychological condition and conundrum. Censored provides the humor needed to consider this complex combination of opposites.
Censored consists of numbered digital
prints (48" x 30") of manipulated newspaper collages hung in a single
line. Below these images stands a used table and used plugged-in television
set running static. Larger installations include multiple pieces of
equipment running static or simultaneous cacophony.
