Shoppers' Fatigue: The Decision Aprons Etching and Assemblage on Cloth at San Luis Obispo Museum of Art
Shoppers Fatigue: The Decision Aprons explores the challenge of living in an over-stimulating and quickly evolving technological world. Choices can be overwhelming, and details are often absorbing and time consuming. At the same time, the quality of the information that we get is highly variable. This series of etchings and assemblages on cloth aprons investigates the difficulties Kathi Flood sees in making decisions while distracted by multitasking and performing under the influence of media manipulation.
As a self-proclaimed “guerrilla sociologist”, Kathi Flood offers colorful, tongue-in-cheek narratives on life in Los Angeles. Her assemblages and installations tell stories of bloated consumerist values, political issues, and the struggle to remain expressive in this age of electronic screens. Using etchings, drawings, fibers, text and found objects, she tells humorous, bombastic stories that catalog the responses to urban life she has observed in those around her.
