“ultimate reality show” at the Grand Rapids Public Museum during ArtPrize 2012

66″h x 48″w x 20″d, welded steel with patinas

About the work:  An over-sized welded steel television set creates a viewfinder and invites the public to observe daily life—the “ultimate reality show.” One of the questions the sculpture asks us to consider is how our perceptions of life are created or altered by viewing two-dimensional images on TV and all the other electronic screens we rely on.

ArtPrize is the world’s largest art competition. The top prize is determined solely by public vote. In 2012, its 4th year, 1517 artist entries will be on display at 161 venues throughout Grand Rapids, Michigan. The sculpture I submitted was selected by the Grand Rapids Public Museum to be installed outside their main entrance. ArtPrize dates are September 19 – October 7, 2012. http://www.artprize.org
