“LASHES” is a collaborative response to “Violence” and “The Sublime Object of Ideology” by: Slavoj Žižek. J.Brown and Courtney Cullen have begun to work on a cross continental collaboration to create and installation which includes, sculpture, print media, and animation. All to envelope the viewer into a discourse brought up by Žižek’s writings and philosophical stance. They are attempting to build a dialect with the other artists and curators in PLACE’s In(ter)dependence show as well as, make a parallel between the Portland art community, modern philosophy, and sociological issues.
