Project Description

You Only Live Twice

Artist: Jeff Sheridan | Curator: Kendra Larson
June 8th, 2013 – June 30th, 2013

You Only Live Twice is an illustrative installation that explores the dual nature of our contemporary existence- which advocates improvement while living in a state of constant decay. The decay of our infrastructure offers a referential observation of the self. Sheridan distorts and simplifies the structure of modern physical identity in order to explore our intrapersonal relationship between our mental and physical carapaces. Bodies are depicted as cocoons in chrysalis. The result of which is entirely up to the viewer. Boundaries between mental and physical are transcended and presented to the viewer as the dried two-dimensional remains of a very multi-dimensional experience.
