Ross Sawyers The future isn’t what it used to be
January 1 to February 28
“The world has shrunk to the size of this room for him, and for as long as it takes him to understand it, he must stay where he is. Only one thing is certain: he cannot be anywhere until he is here. And if he does not manage to find this place, it would be absurd for him to think of looking for another.”
—from The Invention of Solitude, by Paul Auster
Constructing models, then viewing them through the camera, allows Ross to exaggerate and over-state the observations of his surroundings. The environments depicted in the works are close to the actual world, but the artist deliberately refuses to make accurate copies of reality in order to surprise us with environments of the unexpected.
