ATLAS IS A BODY OF WORKS INCLUDING VIDEO, PERFORMANCE, AND SCULPTURE THAT PORTRAYS THE MALAISE OF A MODERN-DAY SPECTATOR AND THE FETISHISTIC RELATIONSHIP TO MASS MEDIA. ⁣

 

LIKE ATLAS WHO WAS PUNISHED TO SHOULDER THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD, A MODERN SPECTATOR IS TIED DOWN BY THEIR OWN WEB OF THE MIND -- AN IMAGINATION FOSTERED BY THE SUPERABUNDANT MEDIA CULTURE. ⁣

 

THIS HIGHLY PROCESSED, EASILY DIGESTIBLE INFORMATION, MEDIATED BY TECHNOLOGY, GIVES US THE MEANS TO FREELY PROJECT OUR OWN IDENTITY ONTO A SLEW OF INDEXES AND ICONS. ⁣WE GROW DISTANT FROM OUR OWN REALITY.

 

EVERY TIME SOMETHING PHYSICAL STRIKES UPON OUR CORPOREAL SELF, THE PANG MAKES US RETRIEVE BACK TO OUR CEREBRAL ESCAPISM EVEN FASTER, DEEPENING THE RIFT BETWEEN THE MIND AND THE BODY.​ THIS DILAPIDATED STANDALONE WALL MATERIALIZES THAT INTERNAL CONFLICT. ​
