LIGHT BULB LITTLE BOMB.

In which visitors are brought face to face with a topographical map of mountaintop removal coal mining and the patchwork turf used to obscure it. The installation expresses illumination and destruction, our intimate relationship between the private, dreamlike lamp and the public, nightmarish sources with which we power them. Named after Picasso’s bombilla (“light bulb”/“little bomb”) embedded in an eye at the apex of Guernica, the work explores conflict, agency, and accountability at the intersection of natural and built.
