Zombie Argument

Harrison Higgs

I equate the idea of human civilization with that of the supernatural, as a move away from and beyond nature. Technology, language, media, our items of luxury and desire-- taken together have become our (collective) primary activity. The resulting stream of replenishing objects has become the animating engine of this world. Using mostly packaging materials, plastic, and glue, Zombie Argument considers the nature of these objects which are made animate only through the act of observation.

Harrison Higgs uses photography, sculpture, printmaking, and digital imaging to reconsider the industrial impulse and its relationship to the individual.
