Desiring to be data for others--->REVIEW in Art Critical
FiveMyles Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, Jan 23-Feb 21, 2016

a freestanding glass shower recirculates a heated and steaming perfumed fluid through its system;
a four by eight foot sheet of plexiglass adhered with remnants of hair, dust, dirt, and skin from a carpet hangs on the wall;
a parabolic speaker playing a looped conversation between two women hangs from the ceiling;
a collection of glass jars containing the shower's fluid stand on a shelf.

The formula for the perfumed shower fluid is derived from recorded data measured by sensors of the heartbeat of the artist;
the residue adhered to the plexiglass is taken from the bedroom rug of the artists deceased mother;
the conversation playing on loop from the speaker is an interview between a female doctor and nurse attempting to quantify bodily sensations;
the bottles of fluid are for replenishing the shower's liquid content to account for eventual loss by evaporation.

#1006 or Betty Grable's behind
digital c-print, 2016

In 1944, Wilton Carlyle Dinges founded the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) in Hanover Pennsylvania. During WWII, the U.S government
commissioned him to make chairs that could withstand water, salt air and sailors. Emeco named the aluminum chair #1006, though most people call it the Navy chair,
whose seat was molded after Hollywood actress Betty Grable's behind. In continuous production ever since, the Navy chair has been adopted into widespread use
for both commercial and domestic settings.
