flatline, utopia (2012)
newsprint, glue or life; varying lengths

flatlines are assembled from stock market graphs which have been cut at every vertex. each shard of newsprint contains one small fragment of straight line. these shards are put back together to form a single, extended line. visually, the reconstituted line creates a sense of depth and weightlessness, seemingly detaching from and hovering above the shards of newsprint. flatlines explore an idea of paradise as a place that appears to us independent of change.
