Nothing to express, nothing to express with, together with the unwavering impetus to express…

For My Human Gets Me Blues, Dylan Turner merges the two spaces of STATION and 3001Gallery into a reflection on the tautology of a given situation- how the meaning of arranged objects turns out to be nothing more than their present condition. Within this spectrum of material, from old to new, organic to technological, and found to constructed, a unified presence of time and authorship emerges. Form, as such, seemingly becomes enough. We derive both an innocuous relief and pleasure from our newfound purpose of purposelessness. However, pathos starts to arise from the subliminal subjectivities of the arranger. There is an absurdist confrontation between the situation and us. So, why are we here again? 

Objective pleasures for objective perceivers!
