I Enjoy Your False Narrative

(RE) FRAMED, 2013

Gladstone Grow Op Submission
Plants are beautiful. Even the unloved common ‘weed’ which has been labeled and then ignored or looked down upon.

Robert Rauschenberg once said he felt sorry for people who thought discarded coke cans were ugly. And that’s the great thing about our perceptive ecology being subjective - we can change it. We can adopt new ways of being in the world. New ways of seeing the terrain we occupy in our daily lives.

(RE)FRAMED proposes a series of custom display cases built to house a single plant common to the urban environment and usually considered a weed. The cases are built with theatrical lighting hidden in the frames, washing each plant in different mixtures of light and shadow. Chiaroscuro instead of RoundUp.
