“Blind Carbon Copy (Drink From The Fire Hose)” is a sly appropriation of a day’s corporate drama. Narrative action item: Global media conglomerate headquartered in New York City commissions program bringing to the table ethnic diversity. Visionary program shall jam the culture inbox, host not one but multiple panel discussions, culminate with cutting edge art exhibition in midtown corporate lobby. Month of June: the Asians. Global conglomerate enlists core competency to brain dump Asian best of breed and hang their art in savvy hallways of media triumphalism. Eleventh and a half hour division head issues the disintermediate: Shut it down.

At the end of the day often refers to what happened during the day. What’s important is that no one got indicted. Just keep moving. Move to a temporary project space and rearrange key communicatives to explore interrelations, intricacies and contradictions of a circle slash. Combine social relations of transculturation with powerful assimilation tools and get past various check points of identity.

The assemblage of artists and their work in Blind Carbon Copy (Drink From The Fire Hose) communicate an elliptical difference, even as that difference opposes clear definable equalities. The featured works vary from graphic art to fashion photography to product design to medium scale paintings. The forms are not limited to but may appear on the internet, television screens, glossy magazine pages, gallery walls. The works deploy a detachment of assimilative meaning. Some are even featured with anonymity, reproduced in mass quantity.

If the difference defines the standard, it must stay on the move, slipping across its own loose borders. Not as a fulfillment to its own distinction but as a passage to drink from the fire hose. Try not to choke.
