ULTIMATUM, BABY! is an ode to play, to ever-shifting identity, consistent inconsistency, and being one with change. This work consists of over sixty silkscreen prints in plexiglass boxes, built to resemble a children’s playground structure. The viewer may spin and change the orientation of these photo collections, arranging and rearranging these moments to mix and mis-match. I see identity as something both fluid and fragmented, as created through memories, objects, clothing, and our experiences. The title of this work rejects the idea that authenticity is our ultimatum; the end-point we all strive to live up to. Instead, ULTIMATUM, BABY! invites us to have fun with every version of ourselves, embracing the unknown through playful change.
