Closing Reception: May 16th, 7PM-8PM
: - some unspecified or unknown thing
-a known understood but unexpressed quantity, quality or extent.
Something is really just some thing. In order for something to be something there must be a something not, a nothing. What makes us decide that something is something and nothing is nothing? Could we not say something is nothing and nothing is something? Why does something mean something? Why do we value something more than nothing? These questions are at the root of my artistic practice. I do not want to find meaning but rather come to an understanding of why and how things mean. I want to understand the processes of cognition and perception. I would like to take what might
seem like a step backwards and asks how meaning is made. How do things mean? Why do things mean? How and why do we make value judgments ? How does something’s value affect what it means? I feel my practice is one that is full of overlapping and ever circling questions that are often overlooked and may never be answered but I feel are important to ponder.
