2023 Exhibition at Peepshow.
Security Guard is based on an email I received from my now deceased father while he was bored at work. The piece is part of the project - Whatever Comes to Mind - which conveys a number of relatively common yet absurd and Kafkaesque situations for the working class. The precarity of the everyday is communicated through rambling, humor, and great detail about the mundane activities of working. A digital picture frame can display sentimental memories but in this instance it becomes the storyteller, the embodiment of my father, sitting around, slowly telling his story while killing time at work.
