Project Statement

HEY. HORNY. GRRRR. explores the frailty of human connection and sexual encounter by unpacking the semiotics of queer hook-up culture in online and social media platforms such as Scruff, Grindr, and GROWLr. The work consists of thousands of letters individually cast in concrete; their size mimicking the form of alphabetized magnets found on refrigerator doors to reference play and recreation. The letters spill, cascade, and swell to form accumulations, piles, and stacks that reveal the most common of greetings, flirtations, and intentions when communicating online. In this in-situ installation, the digital word becomes a tangible visual language that reveals the experiences of the artist, yet evokes the commonalities and the resonate fragments of online interactions shared by most.
