Tedious & Brief, 2019
Windshield wiper, motor, laser cut acrylic, wall mounts, pump and accessories
A windshield wiper eagerly moves across a sheet of acrylic in an attempt to rid the material from the water pouring above. The shape of the acrylic, the wiper arm and the shape the wiper creates, all point to a clocklike form. On the front surface there is text proclaiming the name of the work itself.
Tedious and Brief evaluates how we troubleshoot, problem solve and find resolutions. This work deconstructs the perpetual effort to solve something that may not be able to be solved. The wiper has been given a purpose that is beyond the world we experience and its urgency reflects anxiety which we may have all experienced.
