The artist works with sculptural installation and video to examine the narratives we are compelled to project onto an objective natural world. The installation created during his two-week residency at BoxoPROJECTS depicts a philosophical struggle and a form of exile. Materials in the installation include video, banners and posters, a Toyota Prius, cast polyester resin sculptures, lithograph print, local wild flowers, a custom foam can-cooler, and custom stickers and a postcard series that will be given away at the event. During the residency Chris conducted research, photographed, edited video and sound for this as well as three forthcoming video and sculpture projects.
