There's M I L K on the wall. This is hol sum's latest site specific installation, newly installed last night. Entitled M I L K because the main media is repurposed milk jugs, the resulting texture and luminance reference the original containers' purpose and the location's daily production. Each square foot of these 4' x 8' panels represents an average day's worth of milk consumption at Hooked on Colfax Cafe on Denver's near East side (3213 E. Colfax Ave.). On a grand scale, M I L K glorifies milk as it has re-identified as one of America's favorite beverages - heated and aerated in our lattes of course.
Apart from the site and media's inherent messages, this work correlates with my body of work dealing with repetitive/meditative processes, repetitive elements, and minimal aesthetics.
