No Mans Land


No Man's Land


           Throughout time, humans have developed a system of influence with and over one another. Power has been the leading influence of tremendous achievements which have transformed societies into competitive cultures. Competition has allowed for the development of monuments, traditions, violence, authority, and identity. Shawn Campbell's work utilizes two significant aspects of American culture: football and the military. Using raw and pre-used materials such as plywood, industrial equipment, and obsolete electronics, Campbell’s multimedia works produce dynamic questions about access, usability, and the everyday.  By exploring appearances of violence and power, Campbell produces complicated narratives through the use of objects, playbacks, sound, and projection. The questions that arise in the work are expansive but specific enough to grant an immersive conversation about the function of power and its inherent violence.
