silver over everything captures the infiltration into the real world of the "outer space" that i have created. aluminum foil serves as my personal connection to outer space—it references visuals akin to 1950s predictions of the future that we now know to still be out of reach. it materializes starry-eyed thoughts of outer space being shiny and chrome-like, where astronauts wear silver suits. the silver surfaces behave like mirrors, reflecting light as infinitely as space. by covering objects in foil, i bring myself closer to my imagination, turning it into reality. the excessive use of foil points to an obsession—an odd fixation for an adult to undertake. while the work suggests youthful play, it evokes discomfort in its obsessive nature.
