OLD HEAD

Vacuum, Faux Fur, Electric Air Pump, Timer, 2018

Part homage to midcentury America, part homage to Cam’ron the rapper. Old Head is a Frankenstein monster of passé cultural iconography. These once radical symbols of American ingenuity and aesthetic have fallen from grace to the realm of novelty. The once powerful vacuum struggles for relevance as it now functions more akin to an iron lung.
