A series of fortunate events. With the help of many I was able to take an installation of my work to New York in 2017. As a dutiful servant of the demands of cultural experience I journeyed to the institutions known to hold the valuable artefacts of our time. I came back with treasure on my telephone that also doubles as a visual recording device. Like Zizeks imbecile I accepted the language of our creative time but contrary and as a result of my excess…or was it lack, I also sort to take that swipe at the elephant.
