Scrappler: Paroxysmal Shelter is a solo- exhibition inspired from models and systems of suburban home design in rural areas. The work is conditioned from ideas about shelter. I started with a miniature model that was driven to be in a constant state of performance evolving from small to large scale. The parameters are bound by reactions that are taken apart and put back together, unlike humpty dumpty. This work investigates polarities within familiar and unfamiliar environments.

 

I am interested in how technology influences the way we deconstruct nature and convention. I explored ways to develop glitches with new media technologies in sites that are developing due to the lack of housing. The construction site is a great place to study because its constantly in flux, both ephemeral and permanent; ordered yet chaotic. I am also interested in the breakage of land that we use for materials and how the distinctions and combinations of both of these worlds interact.

 

The construction site became a conditional site that the performer or “Scrappler” collects objects and mines data for material as an art smuggler. The works are collected data through photography, photogrammetry and video and developed into objects and installation.  

 

Kasey is an Interdisciplinary artist whose work explores changes in society, ecology and urbanism through utilization of multi-medium platforms such as installation, performance, sculpture and new media. Kasey is a native-born Texas, received his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and currently teaches in the New Media Department at the University of North Texas.
