- ItemPerformance of Objects(2011) Burrowes, Jesse Harris; Ruppert, John; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)This thesis is about the nature of objects and the interaction of bodies with their extensions and remnants. The residual evidence contained within an object, of and from interactions with living things, is an inanimate performance the suggestions of activity within stillness. As part of the hunt for gestures and moments, all things that I bring into the studio are simultaneously objectified and translated into narratives. In turn these transformative processes embody both a non-fiction of their history and origin, and the fiction of assemblage. Words are at the root of my sculptural works, the physical materials are sought through the necessities of the articulation of thoughts. The found objects are in one way or another facts, and the combinations, compositions and manipulations become a fiction. The performance of objects, the tolerances of materials and bodies, generates a story that is the content of this work.
