Conversations from the Museum of the Uninformed
BLUEorange, Houston, Texas

Developed around themes of information handling the exhibit looks at the void of information as a cultural redaction that allows for public monumentalization and supposition. With white concrete sculptures pulled from the interior dimensions of a safe and multiple references to information redacted or permanently preserved beyond usability, the exhibit considers transparency as manifested by physicality, density and quantity of information as it’s own form of redaction, and the need to re-enact a more theatrically digestible truth as a means to fulfill cultural voids.
