About the Work
Born from detritus, DOMESTICATED, is part elegy and part western cultural mashup.
DOMESTICATED pairs reimagined ancient Greek drama masks and mediæval helmets (Armets, Barbutes, Bascinet, Great Helms, Hounskulls, etc.) with images of the internet age. The protection, artifice, and individual dislocation of the ancient artifacts are distant cousins to our relationship with our contemporary selves. Created with humble materials, second hand cloth and overstock paper, DOMESTICATED accentuates the seams and genealogy of contemporary culture.
