Hindsight is Always 20/20
R. Luke DuBois
This installation examines the history of the presidential State of the Union address through the metaphor of vision. Using the Snellen-style eye chart the installation highlights the sixty-six most frequently used words from each presidential administration, starting with the most often used word on the top line.
Skye Gilkerson was my favorite artist of the day. She is a participant of the Smack Mellon Artist Studio program. She showed a few pieces where she cut out punctuation marks and reassembled them to create a new meanings. I didn’t get any photos of this work but you can see a photo from GrizzlyGrizzly below and more of this series here.
