Keep the Home Fires Burning
Currently included in exhibition “Creative Dishonesty: Cheat Codes” at Duke University’s Center for Advanced Hindsight - December 3, 2011 to January 31, 2012
Keep the Home Fires Burning is an ongoing social and visual experiment concerning the subjective nature of morality and both visual and literary imagery. The work is thematically centered around the 1922 F.Scott Fitzgerald novella, The Diamond As Big As the Ritz, a psychedelic tale of subjective values. Viewers are silently invited to engage with artist and project, leaving open the possibility for varying degrees of participation and the creation of various objects of ephemera documenting moments of contemplation. Envelopes contain 1 of 100 original mixed media collages illustrating selected text.
Results will be measured, observed, and displayed closer to close of the exhibition.
