Approximately Bacon

2016. Installation comprising bead screen, projection, sound (courtesy of Callum Monteith), light sculpture, steel stand, plastic cup, candied vegan bacon, bacon air freshener, plinth, perspex, Bloody Mary. Exhibited at The Old Hairdresser's, Glasgow, Approximately Bacon refers to cycles of aspiration and disappointment experienced through the manufacturing of the body as artefact. The installation is comprised of a small translucent screen laboriously constructed from iridescent plastic beads depicting a pixelated image of folds of bacon through which is projected a long sequence of colour fields that drop off screen at increasing speeds, accompanied by a house music track that never quite peaks; Bloody Marys and candied facon; and a light sculpture offering a viewing/framing hole.
