EXTRA EXTRA is an illustrative satirical installation, addressing modern consumption. In a nostalgic New York City news stand, magazines, newspapers, movie posters, cigarette packs, chips, and candies are displayed in a clustered parody of millennial US culture. Addressing the divide between the powerful and the powerless, EXTRA EXTRA uses humor to ask viewers to consider what we consume, why, and who controls us when we do. Illusion is critical to this work, both formally and conceptually; as the viewer moves closer to the work, reality changes provoking a far less humorous question: what is truth? And what is deception?
