Things That Get in Our Way | installation

This installation, part video and part experimental device, unpacks the way in which our relation to and conception of radiation is grounded in myth-based discourses. The artwork challenges possible understandings which seek to explain why people still seem unable to understand their surroundings without mythic intervention. Audiences are invited to interact directly with the gamma ray detection device and follow the artist's self-described "futile quest" to explore invisible and, to most people, unknown power issues.
