Algorithm of the American Nuclear Family

 
 

Performance Installation

You sit in a decrepit classroom and are taught a lesson that is a mathematical translation of poetic descriptions of the American Nuclear family. Your fortune is read simultaneously through the interpretation of hand-drawn cards that depict ordinary household objects which, when paired, have utility for violent or nonviolent means. "Algorithm of the American Nuclear Family" is an exploration of the tenuous boundary between conscious thought and intuition, and confronts the power of mythology within the political and social landscape of the United States.
