Columbia Welcomes


A cardboard cutout of a salesperson avatar, rendered from a 3D digital likeness of the artist, extends a hand to welcome visitors to the DOMAIN ALPHA exhibition. Donning a white T-shirt proclaiming *PROGRESS**, the figure is a reference to Columbia, the traditional white female personification of ‘American Progress’ and the ‘frontier spirit’, and the contemporary complicity of that legacy. An animated version of same avatar narrates the 'Frontier Tours' on DRAFTx.IO, the Domain Reserve for Art and Frontier Thought.
