REASON, 2002

ABOUT

Reason is a poetic kaleidoscope of the familiar and the not so familiar. It looks at human events, from the minutiae of everyday tasks to the primal actions that connect humans across centuries. The set, a grid-like structure of windows with sliding panels, open to reveal a montage of surreal glimpses into the lives and worlds the artists have created.
