Corpus Res using the body as a sight of fragility to explore cultural assumptions embedded in objects. Utilizing the language of museological artifacts, each figure is mounted to a steel bracket and held away from the wall at human height. Referencing classical sculptures, the appearance of these forms belie their materiality as something seemingly precious upon closer inspection reveals that they consist of impressions from common materials, such as foam, screws, glue, traces of digital carving marks, and thus not the things themselves. Each figure is a container holding the potential for reconsideration. The notion of self and body dislocate as the evidence of mediation reflects upon our current situation. This series seeks to question the authenticity and speculation of objects in our culture while pointing to a latent sense of complacency toward the forces shaping us.
