Personally, I love this sorta thing, although I might never get used to the flux between live people and seemingly stationary sculptural artifact. Maybe its the live-action/still-life combo that makes these pieces so great, maybe its an abstract sort of foreshadowing of an apocalyptic future. Dont ask me, Im addicted to benzedrine.
“uS is the pseudonym for the Conceptual/ Outsider Art duo of Brent Bumgarner and Chris Johnson. Brent, a blind quadriplegic from an automobile accident in 1999, uses an usb pen with his mouth to draw, trace, type, and paint. Chris collaborates in a technical advisor capacity.
The childhood friends formed uS in 2005 from a convalescent home in Asheville, NC after an argument while trying to write an email with speech recognition software. Since then they\’ve created hundreds of works, published a book, and started a non-profit organization to support stem cell research.”
