Grafting and merging are boring. They happen in nature. Collisions are interesting. Explosions don’t happen so often in nature—they require a particularly human capability for catastrophe. E started broken, continues hungrily, and pursues art content relentlessly. E encourages explosions. E’s agenda considers art’s democratic potential, the intrinsic overarching umbrella nature of the medium, collaboration and writing as imperative components in the process, and graphic design’s trend toward the fine arts in the post-print interdisciplinary environment. E wants your discarded bits, the castoff trash of restless purchasing power. Artists regularly claim technologies that are no longer commercially viable, but E also repurposes cultural elements and physical junk. This includes cardboard boxes and entire carnivals. Instead of justifying how these themes fit together, E argues they cannot without some fire. As famed thinker Franz Ferdinand queried, “What’s wrong with a little destruction?” E’s sandbox includes Adobe Illustrator, Potassium Ferricyanide, and civil disobedience. E’s work spans succulents, melted plastic, and guerrilla projection. Instead of justifying how these coexist, E breaks the one off in the other. And yes, then adds fire.
