Easy Cheese- Squeeze and Release, 2020, Two 20 x 12 inch digital photograph printed on canvas with two monitors embedded in the surface playing video on loop

A hypnotic video paying homage to the YouTube current of oddly satisfying, ASMR, or novel pimple popping videos, cycle on an endless loop. As abject material spills beyond its bounds, this piece questions the pleasure in catharsis and allure of abjection. We are reminded that all bodies ooze. Harp music plays in the background as a binaural whisper and faint material squishing tickles the ears. But it’s all just easy cheese, you know.
