Matching Game, 2011

Matching Game was exhibited in Gallery 2 of the Fine Arts Center at Washington State University in April, 2011. This installation, composed of three pods, allowed me to correlate and organize numerous sub-projects. Each pod loosely represented my own past (by way of North Dakota,) present (by way of Pullman, WA,) and future (by way of the Faroe Islands.) The Matching Game quizzes, which were filled out by strangers before the exhibit, served as a thematic framework for the installation. These word games, as organized as they may be, remind us of the arbitrary nature and inherent failures of the language we use to describe our aspirations, needs, and fears.
