We Could Be Transcendent Apes

Field Projects
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 14, 6-8PM
On view: January 15 – February 20, 2016
526 W 26th Street, #807
New York, NY 10001

The project features multiple videos telling the abstracted story of monster sent to earth to destroy the human race, but instead finds itself on a spiritual quest. It takes inspiration from sci-fi B-movies, the utopian ideals of rave culture and self-help literature. The videos feature artist Jody Wood and music by Todd Carter, Chris Colthart, Kelly Marie Martin, and myself. The video works are accompanied by drawings, a selection of online animated GIFS, and a limited edition zine with illustrations, an interview between Esther Ruiz and myself, and writings by Blair Murphy, Ish Klein and Greg Purcell.

We Could Be Transcendent Apes is the culmination of several years work and residencies at The Arctic Circle, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Signal Culture, and Field Projects itself. It has been quite the experience and I hope you will join me in celebrating the journey.

You can read the interview with Esther Ruiz here.
