From Carianne Mack and Malinda Theisman about their installation at the Art Museum of the University of Memphis:
The images we have created on the wall originated from each of our
apartments and represent piles of disorder in our everyday lives; a disheveled bed and an overflowing laundry basket. Our materials – shredded office paper, cardboard boxes and other ephemera – represent the accumulation of innocuous things in our daily lives that often cloud our ability to feel in control of our surroundings. We then looked to the color and organization of maps for the wall drawing, in effect mapping the geography of our lives.
Disorder, geographical space, and the mundane. I wish I could see this up close.
