Slipping into order: a glitch in the phylum

(Portland, OR-) I turned the The Nine Gallery into a classifier’s workshop during the month of July as in an homage to the 300th birthday of Carolus Linnaeus, the father of the modern system of biological classification and nomenclature.

Organic sculptures co-mingle with found objects, both natural and machined, blurring and confusing the distinction between technology and nature in a theatrical construction that invites sorting, counting, and naming. Strewn schematics, unfinished projects, and vacated furnishings fuel an experience that turns viewer into voyeur.
