Created by Sean Kelley-Pegg, January 2010.
As artists, most of us work day jobs to stay above water. I wanted to capture a certain state of mind related to that. As a kid, my dad wore a suit to work, and I was always intrigued by the power it projected, while at the same time being repulsed by how a suit felt to wear. Maybe I just never spent enough money on one.
Later, while developing the piece, I found I really wanted to resist a singular narrative ‘story,’ but each attempt at an edit just seemed to narrow things down to one interpretation. I decided to take advantage of the delivery medium and present more than one. Which edit you see is randomly chosen when you arrive at the site. Experience will vary among people.
