Junior High 2077, 2019




2077 I've noticed a rapid growth of grey hairs on my head in the last year...not sure if it's a physical manifestation of our turbulent surroundings, reduced exposure to the sun, or simply me just getting older; most likely, all of the above. Conjuring thoughts on mortality of self and that of the brain toggles rapidly between: how we can fix this mess; and how perhaps mother earth just needs a break from us all. And if by the year 2077 (my 100th birthday), if humans no longer exist, what will the world look like? And will objects that have been quietly observing our behaviors pick up where we left off in personified form? The delicate, surgical precision of hand-cutting paper provides a slow and thoughtful meditative means to process the heaviness, and the deliberate positioning of objects creates slight narrative ambiguity, blurring the lines between tense dystopian drama and the positivity and power of color, form, and humor.
