Posing in the form of an artist talk, Autoselections layers together various autobiographical strata relating to my art practice, philosophy, and personal history. The work is a performance that moves amongst demonstration, documentation, and fiction, adopting chance-based systems that devolve structure to audience influence. The result is a variable experience of my own art practice, that reveals how my work has repeatedly attempted to move away from systems, while simultaneously retreating back into them.
