Thinking Hurts Too Much

When: June 21-July 31, 12 p.m. 2016

Thinking Hurts Too Much is a slowly scrolling video that incorporates found and manipulated Internet footage, creating a panoramic collage of gyrating, pulsing, and writhing characters which reveals America’s—and the world’s—desire for the sensational. The glut of disparate, disconnected, and disembodied figures; some real and some imaginary perform on layered keyhole stages, serving as a reminder of our profound knowledge of images aimed at the edge of acceptability and decency. The thousands of images pieced together become a provocative and poignant portrait of excess and the constant desire for new and more extreme visual stimulation.

Price: $0 – $7
