Anna Gray + Ryan Wilson Paulsen
Maybe it Takes a Loud Noise
July 3, 2012 - July 28, 2012
Language and image inform us let us understand the objective world and the other way around. The power of text can never be underestimated and if we occupy our own mind we might come up with solutions. That doesn't mean we can't be inspired by others.
Ryan and Anna attempt through the aesthetic of minimalism to reach into our psyche and to do just that inform us that and remind us that everything is not alright.
We consume a lot of trivial information which is packaged to influence our buying habits but that trick works the other way around to and reading words can trigger a response in us like a call to resistance or to action.
If you want to be provoked into a deeper level of thinking go and see this extroverted show for introverts.
