The first blockchain-based project commissioned by a major US museum. For Public Key/Private Key (2019) the artists made and donated a 16mm film to the Whitney Museum of Art's Special Collections on behalf of city donors, chosen by essay contest. Fifty tradable blockchain-based tokens were made for each of the donors of the work.
Coming up at Aurora Picture Show's Satellite Series. A collaged landscape of images from DeSmet, SD, Discovery of Freedom (2014) is a winter portrait of the site of the famous Laura Ingalls Wilder "Little House on the Prairie". In this work the stark landscape of Wilder's youth is juxtaposed with the architecture of the rural industrial present in the town near the homestead site.
A film work of cinematic scale, Cleaner (2019) traces the creative awakening of a maintenance worker. Her movements are framed within the routines of manual labor yet set against the work environment of the tech economy. The film, shot on location at the headquarters of Kickstarter, juxtaposes the physicality of traditional labor with the abstraction of technological work through its use of soaring camera work, precise framing, and choreography inspired by every day movement. This fractured narrative exposes the tight grip of corporate social space and the precarity inherent in all forms of work today.
