The two pieces i did for U&T ended up being fairly similar, while looking fairly different. They're both topographical maps in which two separate places are connected, by a bridge in this piece, and by a isthmus in the other (the Isthmus of Ideology). Didn't plan on this (i realized their similarity after their conception) but i guess it must say something about how the phrase Us and Them resonated with me. I guess that my thoughts went in the direction of a connection between us and them, a point of egress and ingress for either party; no matter how irreconcilable differences (minor or major) may seem, there's always a land-bridge, somewhere, where we can meet and have tea and trade baseball cards. Maybe that place is art.
