The Known Effects of Lightning on the Body
A low-lit installation in which a match is projected onto a sheet of copper. The match is lit, and "bows" as it burns, its body slowly succumbing to gravity, physics, and the chemical reaction that began in the match-head. Above, a single, mirrored bulb directs light and the eye upward, its form in vertical symmetry with the match's. When the match extinguishes itself, it dissolves, only to be replaced with a different match, which burns and bows in turn.

Originally presented at YYZ Artist-Run Centre, 2014. Produced with the Support of the Canada Council.

Laneway street art exhibition August 18 & 19, with celebration on Sunday, August 17 from 4 to 7 p.m.!
Inspired by the entrepreneurial television series’ Shark Tank and Dragons’ Den, Dragon Tank aims to reproduce the absurd products pitched within them. With humour in mind, the artworks will function as vestiges of the most needed and most useless consumer products. In a time when ridiculous and nonsensical has become the norm, we are critical of the enigmatic ‘North American Dream’ capitalism offers to consumers and entrepreneurs alike. And question who this ‘dream’ is really for, in the context of race, gender, sexuality, and class.
