Electric Park

(8 images)

Electric Park is a series of sculptural paintings derived from amateur video recordings at American amusement parks. The name not only pays homage to the actual Electric Park of Kansas City, one of the earliest and most symbolic American parks, but to electricity itself, which gave birth to both moving images and amusement parks. These extensively layered works are extracted from the passive lenses of amusement park-goers’ cameras in order to actualize more engaged models of remembrance, play and narrative construction amidst the machinery of one-track rides.
