This was my first solo art show, as the flyer says. The original idea behind the show was to create 100 small wooden buttons. Each piece would have different words labeling red buttons on white panels, thus giving non-specific direction or meaning to each button. Some were left intentionally blank as well. According to the statement, each word was chosen randomly to make the buttons more obscure - lending the interpretation of each button pressing to the one doing so.
I was invited to do this installation as the opening show for a (then) new Sacramento gallery, Series 13, by its owner Raju. I agreed before seeing the space, which I have come to learn one shouldn't get in the habit of doing. Upon seeing the gallery and where I was to have the show, I realized 100 wooden buttons wouldn't do much to fill the 17'x14'x10' room. So, with quite a bit of inspiration and obligation, I designed more imagery to be painted directly to the walls.
