LUKE DUBOIS: A MORE PERFECT UNION
SITE presents a solo exhibition of New York-based artist, composer, and software engineer R. Luke DuBois. This exhibition will feature a range of new and recent works that explore democracy, elections, politics, and demographics.
Hindsight is Always 20/20 (2008) is a work that synthesizes the State of the Union addresses by 41 US presidents and organizes their most frequently used words into the familiar descending format of the Snellen eye chart.
While Hindsight offers a particular kind of linguistic portrait of 41 presidents, this exhibition will also feature two more recent works profiling our current and most recent president. These works include: facist.republican (2016-17), a twitter-based portrait of Donald Trump, and Obama (2017), a portrait of our 44th president through fragments of his public addresses over eight years in office.
