Blotto

Blotto explored the structure of decorative pattern as behavioral pattern. The work hovered somewhere between the structure of commercial display, clinical observation, and the structure of domesticity. Video stills of body language from yawning to talking with one’s hands were captured to build an inventory of enigmatic inkblots with associations from the erotic, to the grotesque and the ridiculous. With the use of pleasing color variations for the wallpaper, these images were combined with motifs to suggest frequency of occurrence. These elements work together through the masks of display and consumption to reference beauty, desire and preferred rhythms. Blotto merged the notions of habit with our impulse to examine and decipher, along with our innate need to utilize decoration to trace a line around ritualized space and actions.
