Sculpture made for Art In The Park, Jefferson City, Missouri. The use of the ready made is becoming a theme in my current work. Car bomb utilized a real car and this one investigates the structure and vernacular of place.
New media also comes into play. For this piece I installed a video projector and dvd player to project a spider making a web. The projection is shot onto the ground and can only be seen at night.
There is a juxtaposition of similarities when you look at the structure and movement of the windmill and spider constructing it's web. There's even similarity between images and objects that corresponds to a rural setting. I was interested in place as context and added the word "prison' to drive the theme. I was also tempted to finally title a work based on the work of Guided By Voices. It wasn't a literal homage but something in likeness.
Music, I hope, finds a place in all my work. Thanks to Christian Marclay, John Cage, Dan Graham, Thurston Moore, Lauri Anderson, Terry Allen...etc. Terry told me in a phone conversation that there is no difference in the making of music and art. With the obvious differences of material aside, it's about ideas. Different idea delivery systems.
