Unclogging the Cannons

This work has manifested as a response to the presumption that the historical memory of western civilization and the resulting aesthetic value system are necessarily founded upon the sublime and sacred so-called-masterpieces accumulating within the cold granite tombs of the Museum, of the library archives, and the slide vaults of the cultural institutions dedicated to preserving and disseminating (to those worthy of such an initiation) the saintly monuments of our cultural heritage. If new aesthetic languages are to be conceived - as I believe to be quite possible and desirable - one must first consume, digest, and excrete the linchpins of this imperialistic cultural currency.

All works: Draino on 35mm Mounted Kodachrome Slides.
