Artist Statement

The body of work entitled Gal in a black four door import started with a personal desire to meet individuals via a virtual world and read stories that seem based in a sort of absurdity which are often elevated by public forums and the gaze of internet cruisers. As an ambiguous and often stigmatized expanse, I have been drawn to the vacuous pool of possibilities that the internet can provide for connection, and thus began using missed connections from Craigslist as my intermediary for drawing lines between people who may never have intended to meet, but could acknowledge a need to connect. The final piece, a collaboration with Mark Keppinger, the man who wrote Gal in a black four door import post, aims to build upon an existing lexicon of stranger interaction and camera documentation by engaging a contemporary context of this intermediate that often serves a forum of call and response interaction.
