JAVELIN
Steven Randall
April 8 - April 29, 2017
Opening Reception Saturday April 8, 6-8 PM

From transmitter to transected, an unintended javelin falls from a sun-bleached facade / Dusty tarpaulins reveal plans patented in camouflage / What was a leaf is now a metal antenna / No signal / Inert shells crumble in decay / Banners hang in tattered remains / Collective directories fade into obsolescence / Printed matter dissolves under whitewashed oblivion / The future arrived too late.
