Bob Packert and I have collaborated on the knife-edge of art and commerce for the past 15 years. Faced with a dozen hard drives of data, our first step was culling his stash of elegant and evocative advertising campaigns and fashion editorials. Themes emerged which formed the structure of the show. I drafted up the gallery design, assigning nine areas highlighting each chosen theme. 

We created unique output for each theme including:

Video Installation

Video Installation

  • Video installation of 15 films synchronized to play in random intervals
  • Large format acetate prints backed with corrugated plastic
  • Mounted prints in distressed wooden delivery boxes
  • An encaustic wall mural
