Ad-Hoc Trajectories is a sculptural metaphor for the process of developing meaning or purpose from an otherwise chaotic background of experience. Small staircases, bridges, and boardwalks are used to take the form of linear trajectories, which are built upon a chaotic interconnected ad-hoc matrix of the same substances filling the gallery space in an immersive installation. Inspired by the post-modern philosophies of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, this work attempts to connect the concept of acquired experience as a perpetual trajectory within the classical duality of order and chaos. The defining of the linear trajectories is to compare the elements of order verses disorder, by putting into question the validity or purpose of such trajectories when based upon a chaotic but stable support.

This piece is intended as a critique of the validity of inherent meaning, purpose and goals which are derived as linear constructs, or are considered quintessential within the movement of an ordered trajectory or otherwise put as part of a discernible experience.

This work will be installed at the Fifty Fifty Arts Collective, December 4-25th, with the opening reception December 4, 5-10pm. Cupcakes and light refreshments will be served.
