Next two projects


My next two projects tread more of Gonzalez-Torres' well-worn ground.

The first one will be a series of very private communications shared very publicly through social media.

By moving our private communications messages and images, those we issue everyday and those we issue not so often, to public communications channels, I am adapting another of Gonzalez-Torres' techniques, revealing the permeability of barriers between the public and private spheres. He did so by projecting Foucault into the AIDS era.

I won't send every message through public channels, just here and there.

Will making very private communications public help me to live an authentic life?

The second is to appropriate his word-portraits and use Facebook to install them.
