Rolling Boil

I have been disgusted and furious about what's going on in the world in the name of my country over the last six or so years. Rolling Boil is a body of work that both references the extreme heat of my anger, and also "expresses" it, like lancing a boil. Everything in the Rolling Boil series is on wheels.

The Rendition Vehicle (above) is about extraordinary rendition flights. According to Wikipedia, "A June 2006 report from the Council of Europe estimated 100 people had been kidnapped by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) on EU territory and rendered to other countries, often after having transited through secret detention centers used by the CIA in cooperation with other governments. According to the European Parliament report of February 2007, the CIA has conducted 1,245 flights, many of them to destinations where suspects could face torture, in violation of article 3 of the United Nations Convention Against Torture."

A subset of the Rolling Boil series is a group of animals on wheels (above), collectively called Rolling Stock. People have so completely colonized every part of the planet and its atmosphere that animals (who by natural rights should be entitled to habitat and a life in that habitat) have become pawns in an economic calculus, moved and removed according to the desire and imperatives of humans.
Everything is on wheels, rolling along, a small movement of objects made from wood, buttons, nails, and other stuff that has a prior history. Just so, our country has a history, and that history keeps changing, rolling along toward a future that is invisible and unknown. Above: Feeding the World, Movement, and Raising the Dead.
