Narcissus Loop extract

Narcissus Loop, 2018 Christin Paige Minnotte (mirror, video) + Lauren Shapiro (cement) Ink on plexiglass mirror, video (6m : 10s), cement 72 x 60 inches Narcissus Loop engages the viewer in a landscape shifting continually between the natural and manmade. Engaging repetition, inversion, mirror, translucent inks, projection, glass, porcelain and cement, as the viewer navigates the installation they are confronted formally by shifting glowing colors from projection on mirror, shifting prisms from glass polygonal forms shifting shadows and shifting identification of forms from natural to manmade. Conceptually, like the mythical Narcissus who lost himself in a continuous loop of self reflexivity, the viewer is confronted by the tension of the conflicting relationship at constant interplay between man and nature.

Disposable Ethic by Christin Paige Minnotte

Disposable Ethic illuminates an irony of industrial progress, specifically with respect to plastics in the ocean - the idea that mankind’s ability to transcend natural limits could seal its doom. It asserts the evolutionary irony that the human species’ gift of creative intelligence seems, in the case of plastic as a world changing innovation, at odds with humanity’s survival. Disposable Ethic is particularly about the intersection of the aforementioned creative intelligence as it relates to ethics in the case of plastic. It articulates that intersection of the beauty of creative intelligence and the tragedy of the unethical use of that intelligence.
