I was invited to participate in Area 405’s Sweet ‘Art 10th anniversary event. I was paired with Tyler Farenholt and the idea was that we were to collaborate or create some new art based on our interaction with each other.
We are both busy guys, and we didn’t actually connect until the week before we were supposed to install. I realized there was no way we were going to get to know each other well enough to pull off a collaboration. Tyler was slammed with his MICA work and I am finishing a round of commissions. Tyler suggested putting in some self portraits he made (he’s very good at them). This made me think about how we present ourselves to the world in different situations. What are the things we want to share with the new people in our lives? Or keep private? And so, I made the waiting room.
