Glendening and Sarin at PLACE
It is always interesting to watch what young artists do in their first year out of grad school... usually it means divesting themselves of academic baggage such as the overuse of jargon. Usually they try to show as much as possible to get traction and collaborative projects are a good way to develop focus outside the MFA bubble while not over showing solo work.
This weekend, Daniel J Glendening & Jason Starin (both recent local MFA grads), "are working collaboratively on New Function. Glendening will be presenting new objects and images, riffing on themes of mortality, impotence, hope, and prosthetic spirituality. While Starin will be guided by his interest in how digital material influences our notion of physical form in reciprocal and possibly reactionary manners. Starin's practice reconsiders function as being more than utility by extending its meaning into the experiential need to comprehend with our hands. As the notion of the object advances digitally, it is his belief that archiving experiences tangibly will continue to define human nature and, in the context of the virtual age, is an increasingly important act to follow."
Hint, stop using excess jargon like, "notion of physical form in reciprocal and possibly reactionary manners," or, "archiving experiences tangibly." Still, it is worth checking these two.
