THE LAST TWO WEEKS


“The Last Two Weeks” Multimedia Box was created this past Spring, and was exhibited at my shows in Kunow and Frankfurt, Germany. The following text I wrote at that time, to explain my thoughts behind this work:

Might the 14 cells of this box represent some of my observations over the course of the past two weeks, or might they represent the last 14 days of my life? And would they look differently in either case?

“The Last Two Weeks” offers a stripped down (object and audio only) version of the themes that pass through me on a daily basis: intimate relating, death and aging, image attachment, the balance and violence of nature, environmental devastation for the sake of upholding our human lifestyles, the sadness of celebrity, socially derived judgments, emotional denial and the facades of appearances, inner child, and the seriousness inside of all that looks happy: the duality of ourselves.

AUDIO FOR “THE LAST TWO WEEKS”


Six of the 14 cells of “The Last Two Weeks” inspired a poetic response from me; when you pick up the phone receiver on the outside of the Box, I recite my poems to you, which you will experience here along with corresponding images from the interior of the work.

This audio was created in May. For those of you who know what’s going on behind the scenes in my life right now, you will understand what segments I would have to edit in order that this audio might hold up against my current experience. But I reveal to you what my heart felt it only natural to say six months ago. This audio is, then – at least for me – evidence of the complexity and the tragedy of trusting in noncommittal love.
