OPERATOR ADVANCES INTO BRUSH AT FULL THROTTLE
Kunkel, Jeremy Thomas

I am compelled by the underlying conflicts that feed conditions into the contemporary landscape. Conflicts stemming absurdities such as abuse and neglect by fostering a false sense of disconnect into the sedentary individual. Structures of power, progression and control are hegemony framed as ideology that demands a mass and momentum; Like sedatives, dulling cognizant intuition, codified rhetoric is seductively buried into objects, digital feeds, and other means. This pulls the individual away from the reality of the world, creating a false landscape and redesigning individual habitus to align with a given narrative, or purpose, outside of the self. As these conflicts evolve in broad strokes through society into conditions, I am compelled to look beneath the surface, distilling the foundational corruption that I perceive. My work collides with and disrupts this momentary intersection, where objects and other processes, imbued with the language of society, are apprehended by individual intuition.
