Science/Fiction lays out the philosophical and personal underpinnings of the homonymous exhibition. The works shown are driven by an engagement with source materials ranging from the film The Trial to the experience of opacity as it applies to certain genres of language. I explore themes of automatic authority, familiarity/unfamiliarity, and the experience of opacity using paint, photocopier, typewriter, and other methods. Through strategies such as exhaustive repetition and the intentional obfuscation of information, images and words are stripped of their original semantic.
