WORK WON'T KILL YOU: FORENSICS

SYRACUSE, NY 2016

Ortiz has constructed a simulated work environment that investigates the interaction between art and work in the lives of individuals and the life of the community. The WWKY workforce applies the tools of art in a forensic fashion through the collection and systematic examination of images from the Near Westside neighborhood; people, places and moments that reflect the history and character of this community. Ortiz and her workforce transform the documentation into an installation /performance to illustrate the similar nature of art, work and life.

WWKY WORKFORCE: Luz Encarnacion, Ian Funderburg, Brian Hammons,  Dwight Hobart, Mary Anne McClusky, Curtis McLaurin, & Morgan Williams

 

Exhibition open to the public: June 1 -  17, 2016.
