. . . . Exploitation III
Ethos or Pathos
Self Organized Exploitation

Selforganized Exploitation:

the Pathology of Biology, Burden of Physics

In a time, when it seems, our only function is to "grow the economy,"
I, at fifty-four am suspicious of a mission so bereft of informed
consciousness. Messengers field isms to sooth a popular aesthetic. I have lived in the Northwest all my life, skirting commercial intent, knowing that POP is the tail of a serpent whose head one will
never see. I can not summon the pristine, to create for those who wish
for works to confirm that everything is Ok and getting better. I must chronicle what we are really about -- the arts included -- a brusk, and unceremonious demise to earth. I have long worked with
"humanity in a box", my newest work -- the Unspecified figures from the
Burden of Physics series -- is the result of a sojourn to the Middle East, India and North Africa. With recycled detritus the work deals with the human condition, equations of power -- to represent the pragmatic selforganized meritocracy -- the material progress of culture with its overpopulation, and loss of personal identity.
My materials, designs and symbols are -- for me -- not always appealing,. However their use is imperative to convey my existence as a contributing member of The Planet. Consider my work as an addition to the body of knowledge.
