Annoying Poem is a visual/sound experiment documenting a simple, pointless act repeated over and over. The viewer is surrounded by projections of combined instances of wood being repeatedly thrown at a corner in the artist’s studio. The images of flying detritus and cacophonous ricochet sounds are viscerally alarming while simultaneously verging on becoming calming white noise. The viewer is standing inside a memory of a calamitous event that was actually a simple, boring, monotonous event. Loud clattering sounds. Why are you doing this?
School 33 Art Center is dedicated to providing opportunities for visual and performing artists through solo and group exhibitions, art classes, hands-on workshops, a Studio Artist Program and special events. A program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, School 33 Art Center is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council and through private contributions. School 33 Art Center is the proud recipient of a grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, which supports fearless and innovative collaborations in the spirit of Robert Rauschenberg.
