Carte Blanche Construction

Blank Rolodex cards

"Installation at 123 Watts Gallery/Jose Bienvenu Gallery, New York
Installation at Mixed Greens Gallery, New York

In Carte Blanche, masses of blank rolodex cards are composed into precarious structures that are reminiscent of cliff dwellings. In our digital age, rolodex cards hint at obsolescence and outdated systems of communication. The white surface reads as information erased, no longer needed, and inaccessible. Carte Blanche is an elaborate construction where each card is dependent on the next, mirroring the network of social contacts within our fragile existence."
