Artist Statement:

    “Untitled (A New Landscape)” explores a possible speculative future of the quick-stop convenience of Capitalism. The work is inspired by an actual neoclassical building in Washington, DC which outlived its former purpose and was transformed into a gas station snack shop. In some ways, the transformation of this grand building into something so mundane is a metaphor for the post-capitalist society in which we are living. Set to “the most famous hold music in the world” (Cisco’s “Opus #1” by Tim Carleton and Darrick Deel), the piece provides a pause for contemplation.
