Good Director Islands, 2013
Series of prints
Archival ink jet print, 24k gold leaf, laser etched glass
5 x 7 inches each

The Western idea of paradise as an island surrounded by warm crystal blue water. Without consideration of the isolation. In fact, the isolation, getting away from it all, is the appeal. The fantasy. Each of these images is a desktop wallpaper. The focus of hours of gazing, day-dreaming. The etched texts are lyrics from pop songs about paradise.
