Minnesota-based Chris Larson examines the relationship between humans and machines. In recent works, the artist has used his prodigious woodworking skills to depict large objects colliding--a spaceship nearly flattening a wooden barn, for example, about which Larson has remarked, "I wouldn't go and say this is about this church that was blown up in the 30s. I wouldn't say this is about, like, invading Iraq or some planes crashing into buildings. It's just--there's a lot of two worlds colliding right now, and it doesn't seem like they're colliding real well." Another constructed collision shows the General E. Lee (the 1969 Dodge Charger made famous by the 1970s television show The Dukes of Hazzard) crashing into Unabomber Ted Kaczynski's Montana cabin. This publication features a new film, as well as recent sculpture, drawing and photographic works, evidencing what critic Ken Johnson has termed "a promisingly strange and baroque imagination.
