Dog Park Presents: Crumb Shot courtyard pedestal room (in the Graffiti Wall) November 21, 6-9pm Alfred University
“Crumbshot” is an exploration of the over-packed space of our minds, and of the studio landscape, both packed full to the brim. Combining a closely packed grid of pedestals with recorded sound, a confusing and perhaps claustrophobic experience will challenge how the viewer traditionally navigates the space and perceives the work displayed. Tightly grouped pedestals will be populated by found objects, fragments, broken or unrealized pieces, and ideas still germinating, all sourced from the nooks and crannies of Harder Hall. Each object will be positioned to be viewed as both finished thoughts and fragments of ideas, without the pressure to cement itself as anything more or less. “Crumbshot” will be the second installment of DogPark’s pop-up installation; in short, it will be a systematized sweeping up of all the burnt crumbs rattling around in Harder Hall’s toaster coils.
