Project Description

Mike's Drive

DETAILS

February 15 - 28, 2010
Lenox Square Mall

Brett Osborn + Michael Brown

“Osborn Brown” define their work as Situationalism, or recontextualizing the mundane in order to value the real. In our hyper real reality where everything has been elevated to the point of being “art” (Reality TV is an example) they focus upon calling attention to this false elevation of mundane events. In Mike’s Drive what is projected is imagery of Mike and Brett driving around the neighborhood. There are no crashes or police chases, no accidents—nothing that would make this event extraordinary.
