A preview of a work that will be in “Pulp: Works on Paper by the Studio Art Faculty“: “Super Imitation”, a sculpture using altered men’s shoes by Phyllis McGibbon. Her artist statement is listed below the image.
This project incorporates fragments of text from a book called, “Super Imitation” that advocates the proactive copying and recasting of western business practices as a vehicle for success in the new economy. Gallery visitors who can read Chinese are invited to translate and record the lines of text that stand out to them. -Phyllis McGibbon
