Man Made

multimedia installation, 1999, Ace Art, Winnipeg. This project involved sculpture, robotics, 3 video monitors and 6 audio channels.

This installation explores elements of toxic masculinity that I’ve experienced at different stages of my life. Based on the riddle of the sphinx, I created sculptures that represented myself at three stages. A young boy crawls up from a bed of broken plates. The office worker sits with two feet at a glass desk. The artist stands on one leg with crutches.
