The Locust (2004)

The Locust presents a complex scenario proposing that the four members of the San Diego grindcore band of the same name are the result of a fashioning of entropic abstract ooze - an association I had made after attending one of their performances.
Within the exhibition, the band, their performance, and its reception by me, are described as a narrative addition to popular culture written by an audience member. I implicated myself as a member of their audience to illustrate a form of active participation by example. My constructed history of The Locust represented one example of what an individual's attention to an environment can produce. The exhibition was set up as a makeshift archive documenting the pre and post-thought I had applied to the identity of The Locust.
