In these single-channel video works, Tyrone Davies takes a spare and unloving look at that most ubiquitous and, some might say, insidious of all media: television. "Cathode Loop 1" (2008) and "Cathode Loop 2" (2009) explore the disposability and obsolescence of cathode ray tubes. The exhibition also includes an excerpt from "Jelly Boil."
Tyrone Davies is a Bay Area artist and a 2010 MFA candidate at the San Francisco Art Institute. His work explores questions of mediated spectacle and mass culture either through the reuse, re-appropriation, and re-contextualization of recorded material and industrially produced objects, or by producing work that reconsiders established assumptions about cultural trends. Film, Video, Collage, Sculpture, Performance, and Painting are all disciplines that Davies works within in order to disassemble, and then reconstruct themes, messages and trends that are found within both domestic and global cultures.
