Brett Swenson makes videos and objects that explore the felt mechanics of seeing and perceiving. He’s interested in the sticky relationship between surfaces and interiors, and how these elements physically rework each other to create new and relationally expressive forms. His current work is about domesticity and the boundaries of a cultural ‘middle’– bringing ‘normalcy’ into visibility and therefore into question as the expectations and gray areas of the everyday are made visceral and strange.
