Let's just say that I keep expecting Roddy Piper to jam a pair of magical sunglases on my face, and rip the veil off the aliens that are pulling the strings. Something has to be up!
This is a pretty rich theme to mine as an artist, however. I'm playing with various ways to comment on the whole absurdity. The first project I'll post involves 'fossilized' Dasani bottles with the bones of aquatic creatures (grayling, otters, etc.) embedded in the matrix.
- What are the implications of treating these vessels (plastic water bottles) as disposable objects?
- What are the implications of treating water (a fundamental building block of life) as a commodity?
