The STUDIO Art Sale is now closed. Thank you for supporting Cranbrook Academy of Art!



    Two-layer silkscreen on paper. Small prints dedicated to the Cranbrook campus itself. The statue pictured is located by the Cranbrook House and Gardens and is shown holding a flip phone. Poking fun at the lack of phone reception in this space, the text tells the story that the statue is stuck waiting there forever, waiting.

    Item is located in Royal Oak, MI. Local pickup available. Shipping unavailable.

    I steal home videos from the internet and rotoscope figures from this space of the past and place them into the chaos of cyberspace. Our movements, our interests, and our deepest secrets, from the past and present, can be dissected online. The connection between the dot matrix of CMYK, cyberspace, home videos, and the blue screen allows me to dive through the nostalgia of the past through our current technology.
