The Probem With Android


The five-piece set “the problem with android” featured with the original type-written allegory as ‘ears’.

The Problem With Android originates from a single banner-style sketch – divided in to 5 smaller individual pieces with the design that each piece be purchased independently. The drawing style and subject matter of this work pull from the Linear Refractions Series but have the additional relation to the allegory from which they draw their name. The allegorical piece “the problem with android” was written during the time I began my original work on the first 3 Linear Refractions – though it held no direct reference to any piece at that time, the play on reality, delusion, and the fixation with electronics has long been an influence with all of these works.  Here the ‘story’ finally finds a home with the divided set featured above. The photo depicts the sketches in their original order, numbered from right to left – each work hides on the back of its top right corner one of the sequential initials B1 through B5. 1

Below you can find and image of the work as it appeared before it was divided, as well as a link to the G-drive page with the coinciding “the problem with android” allegory. If you are lucky enough to have come across one of the ‘problems’ featured above, have you been able to determine its position? Perhaps more importantly, have you determine who else has hold of the other problems with android?SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Art on Sunday

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES Spent the afternoon at the Canaan Congregational Church for the opening of their art show. A brightly lit, airy building that will feature the work of several of the areas local artists. Work ranges from fabric and sculpture, to paint and photography.

Sitting inside, sipping fizzy water and admiring the wide range of local styles and topics – I was also pleased to talk and ideate over the brilliant melding of art and religious space. Traveling has brought to face many new perspectives for me. Today I was enthralled once more to witness the merge and mingle of different disciplines – art, religion, history, anthropology – to observe how the fundamentals of each is uniquely interrelated. Perhaps it is not so much in the direct relationship regarding ‘product’ or even ‘theory’, but rather within the ‘practice’ that develops each of them.

Other concepts for art, the community and the mixing/merging of disciplines continue to accumulate within us. Jana and I are working hard to make some of them visible later this year. Until then, the work at the Canaan show will remain featured inside the church over the next several weeks – adding, what I can only assume, to be a rather intriguing interior atmosphere to the services held.
