“Slumpies are a sculptural body of work presented as useful, utilitarian objects. Their existence is justified by marketing tropes offering a practical solution to the contemporary world of cell phone-dependent humans cum “post-posture” persons. However, the clumsily rendered and bulky execution of the Slumpies is anything but practical and in direct conflict with their conceptual promises. In reconciling the ad-speak with the physicality of the actual objects, we discover their temporality and explore our own condition in this modern paradigm.”
