These three images are from a series of works that started in 2011 titled ‘Metropolicide:Murder Of The City’. I had been watching a great deal of news programming and documentaries online about conflict, everywhere. Flipping from one news feed to another to fact check in some way. Trying to capture the way the scene on camera shakes when a bomb hits. Its still happening, its still madness, its increasing , insidious. The shaking makes me feel ill.
These works evolved into the Order to Chaos themes.
However, they began as a more literal attempt to depict the events I was seeing them, sometimes live on television. As these next three.
At times two monitors running two or three news feeds at once, all sound muted, I tend to listen to just one song at a time, played over and over until I get sick of it and put something else on.
