New York: Printed Matter Inc., 2008

Dark Prospects takes as its source material issues of PeopleTimeNewsweek, and U.S. News andWorld Report. While retaining the form of the magazine, the artist dismantles the medium’s visual language by blacking out all references to corporate branding, time (both textually and visually), textual references to location, and facial features of the magazines’ featured stars and advertising props. What’s left is an unforgiving and stuttering sequence of detonated images and textual fragments supporting a skewed visual narrative of lifestyle and politics—modern life stripped bare.
