An assemblage comprising one cosplay costume, one large scale photographic group portrait, one collage/drawing, and two video stills.

Found, constructed, and ready-made sculptures, textiles, paint, welded steel, dacron,sand.  ​  This work converses with the seriousness of contemporary art about "the age of humans". Numbed by disaster narratives and moral imperatives, it asks if moments of levity can aid in processing our time's emotional buffeting. Through absurdity and speculation Curiouser glances ruefully towards the culture wars around climate, and the sheer impossibility of individually giving Capitalism the slip.
