“Collapsing the incredible complexity of a three-dimensional city into flat layers of chaos simulates the feeling Bryn Forbes gets from seat 12F on final approach to LAX. He’s processing how incredibly complex a city is—imagining a blueprint for every window, every faded and chipped sign, every coat on a hook, every picture on a refrigerator—all in one’s brain, all at the same moment.”
The images are on display until Jan 28th at SLO Museum of Art http://sloma.org
, and hopefully will be up on Bryn’s website http://brynforbes.com soon. In the meantime many can be found at http://behance.net/brynforbes
My work lately has been about the stories behind every window, and the struggle behind every eye, trying to find some small way to encourage empathy in myself and the people around me. In our modern world of busy, we have built walls to keep out the inconvenient, without realizing the connections we have walled out. I invite you to get outside the walls of your own head and see if you can find the story/struggle in somebody that you might not normally give a second or first thought to.
