Object Process Repeat
by Ciborowski, Todd, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 12; 1493102
Abstract (Summary)

My practice is more concerned with making rather than prescribing or projecting ideas. I generally start with an idea or an object and allow the project to build and shape itself. The works in OBJECT-PROCESS-REPEAT were mostly inspired by my personal experiences and memory. Although I work with objects that have personal significance and memory for me, each work also relates to the broader cultural field. By layering material process, with specific historical references, and traditions of craft, I aim to open up possibilities and allow the viewer to find meaning in the work. In this exhibition, OBJECT-PROCESS-REPEAT, my intention was to produce new expressive works from old deaden forms in order to disrupt systems of representation and systems of value.
