In the Project room, Jesse Bercowetz and Matt Bua produce physically and psychologically sprawling objects out of anything and everything. Using simple means, from foam core and carpet to popsicle sticks and electronics, they create a complicated assemblage of paranoid and unhinged associations. Applying the anxious logic of conspiracy theory, their work reflects a world of unfathomable information overload and political deception. Bercowetz and Bua reassemble and entangle our once secure ideologies—what begins as a curious exploration of a sighting of the Virgin Mary in a grilled cheese sandwich ends as a posit for a new theory of human evolution that replaces simians with reptiles. In a world of uncontrollable media and high-speed data streaming, Bercowetz and Bua may be giving us the first objects that faithfully mirror our schizoid insides.
