• apocalyptic archaeology

    Apocalyptic Archaeology features works that are depictions of a ruined world. The works are meditations on the brevity of life, and reveal the awareness of passing time, erosion and decay, and the ultimate deterioration of manmade artifacts, such as architecture, interiors, and landscapes.

  • dreams and memories

    Dreams and Memories includes works that explore the intangible and inescapable realm of the psyche. The artists pose questions about the nature and meaning of recalled experiences, and about the way in which dreams and memories intersect and even morph from one level of consciousness to another.

  • voyeurs/provocateurs

    Voyeur/Provocateurs includes subversively witty scenes-satirical commentaries on art, culture, and politics. These works make the viewer into Peeping Toms that spy on secret scenes.

  • unnatural nature

    Unnatural Nature features work by artists that recreate natural environments using artificial materials and found objects which fool us into believing they are real places.view

The Wreck of Hope (Tribute to Friedrich)

This artwork is on view at the Museum of Arts and Design in the exhibition Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities.

Small worlds are no smaller than the big ones.
Levi-Strauss thought that artworks were always miniatures,
That even the paintings of the Sistine Chapel are small compared to what they depict.
He was partly mistaken, because,

You cannot put feelings on a physical scale, or try to measure them.
And we live in feelings more than in the “physical”—which is but another name for “feeling.”
What is the size of your feeling for life?
What is the size of the word “size”?

Small worlds are not fake worlds, because:
We are not in the world,
The world is in us.
