As presented a Proxy Gallery
Los Angeles, CA
October 1 - 31, 2016
Doodle Box is an amalgamation of the different aspects of my practice: drawing, photography and viewer interactivity. I transformed Proxy Gallery into both the content and the container of my installation, a home-made ad-hoc stereo viewer. The image inside the box is seen in 3D when viewed through the red/blue stereo glasses attached to the box. The doodles on the outside of the box also vibrate when viewed through the glasses. The inside-outside dichotomy is explored as a metaphor for what goes on inside and outside the mind.
In Doodle Box drawings depicting stylized figures in urban surroundings create dense patterns over the entire surfacecover of the outside of the box in addition to filling the head of the girl in a photograph of a freestanding metal sculpture shot in Vancouver. The photograph of the sculpture-that-looks-like-a-drawing, when combined with the drawings, fuses inside and outside in countless ways.
