Owen Marc Laurion

I am interested in human ecology and the (re)reproduction of ideas, content, and knowledge. My work relies on both process and materiality as the foundation for metaphor, analogy, or simulacra. Essentially, I work with, and speak through, a language of sculpture such that any crafted object imbues an array of cultural, social, and material trajectories which enter the work through process and social histories. I am interested in an interpretation of artwork as essentially performative - the maker is performing a role and the crafted object, in turn, produces itself in space. With this framework in mind, my work addresses a variety of topics, or issues, including the American politic, Nature, social justice, personhood, the effect of neo-liberalism on the arts, and commodity culture.
Is the work working?
