Seth Fairweather Statement

My work deals with solitude. My interest and focus is on the individual, without the definitions supplied, implied, or described by surroundings or society. My interest is in creating an object that houses within it a space for the viewer to explore, to lose him or herself and disconnect from their surrounds. The objects and installations that I create are referencing both the natural and the mechanical worlds that surround us, and using them as a way to access a deeper understanding of the self.

           

Connectivity has become a constant tangle of communication that weaves around us like a web. Rather than being able to see and experience and consider things for ourselves, we shout out our smallest thoughts into worldwide airwaves and wait to see how they are received. We form opinions based on how our others interpret what we say and feel, rather than on what we as individuals think and feel. Over time, our individuality becomes lost in the onslaught of mass communication. My work, and my interest, is reclaiming and resolving the question of the individual voice.
