“A false statement need not be a lie.” - from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This piece represents a vast number of questionable Iraq War statements juxtaposed with the names of fallen soldiers. My previous work portrayed familiar rhythms and patterns in nature; however, this workshop inspired me to push my work in new directions. The words in this piece have a purpose; they are not ambivalent. The information is real, although not positive. Its beauty lures you in with familiar words, rhythms and patterns generating endless questions. Its beauty is seductive, tempting and enticing us to move closer, to explore and question. Why is it that when we are seduced by the media 24/7, we do not move closer, to explore and question? This piece represents the tension between juxtaposing facts.
