The Last Picture Show is a transitional space, an interior containing a stage within a stage. Projected off my childhood turntable are images from my memory of a place I once lived , they revolve here like an oft- repeated story- one that induces a state of myopia and remove. The surrounding scene is drawn with rudimentary building materials: chalk on tarpaper supported by solder and duct tape, a childs theatre strung up with hemp rope and illuminated with a single flashlight. This simple but concentrated diagram suggests a distorted present that is both ominous and rife with possibility.
