The project "Current Location" contains instructional text similar to the words and phrases our machines dictate to us everyday through GPS apps and navigational devices. The viewer can follow along with the simple text. The resulting poses one finds oneself in are coercive. One will feel surveilled and have a sense of confused submission. The overall affect of the work is one of misdirection, while an underlying feeling of anxiety and paranoia heighten the interoperation of arrows and directions found in the work.
"Current Location" is a reflection of the artists personal feelings, responses, and interpretation of contemporary US politics. As an American living abroad he is channeling his own sense of displacement with the directionless movement that the US is heading in. Although we know where we are, it is becoming incredibly difficult to understand where we stand and will go next.
