Telfair highlights a selection of mixed media and motorized works, video and animated GIFs by new media artist Derek G. Larson. Included are works from Leveling the Genres, a series of video projections and screen prints first exhibited at the Vox Populi Gallery in Philadelphia in 2012. Larson’s statement on this series reads:
“Enter an office, a mind and a story all at once. Eat a Garfield sandwich with Hegel chips and a glass of Deleuze. Have a hybrid affair, on me. Get the sensation of being connected to everything, feel the art of being everywhere. I’d like to know how it feels to level the genre distinction but for now I can only imagine. Leveling the Genres connects and comments on disparate interests in literature, popular culture and technology…”
Derek Larson’s work has been featured in the Seattle Times, NY Arts Magazine, The Times-Picayune and Rhizome @ The New Museum in New York. He is the director of 4D Studies and assistant professor at Georgia Southern University.
