On each of five architectural columns, a column of vinyl lettering text contains all the words needed to construct a popular love song. When presented in this manner, the emotions and sentiments lose their impact, and the over-riding message is one of banality. The words and repetitions become formulaic, and by extension are able to be reduced, reused and recycled.
This site-specific installation is shown here installed at the Rochester Art Center, Rochester, MN, USA.
The desire to stay versus the inevitability of change
Do nothing, that is the second best option
The longer I sit, the less inclined I am to stand up
If you wait long enough, something always happens
I could do that (as I'm already up)
Itís always good to use first person in the narrative (Variations on a theme)
My wife is so proud of me...
All it takes is a little willingness to make the necessary adjustments
And then I woke up and it was all a dream
This notion is only temporary
Tuesday Night, 8pm
I never said I didn't like you.
