HANDJOB Gallery//Store | 238 Wilson Ave
Please join us THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 7–9PM to celebrate the launch of the newest HANDJOB Gallery/Store limited edition and window display by artist Andrew Salomone!
These reusable Swiffer dust mop covers, which were made with a hand-operated, hacked, electronic knitting machine, feature digital patterns based on royalty free gradient wipe video transitions. By effectively removing dust from the surface of your floor, these woolen "Gradient Wipes" can physically transform the square-footage of your living space, just like a video transition wipes between footage.
Andrew Salomone is an artist, teacher, and writer who works with traditional arts and crafts processes that are informed by technology and DIY culture. He’s lectured on internet art practice at Parsons the New School for Design and worked as a resident artist in The Museum of Art and Design's Open Studio Program. He often creates handmade products that respond to the psychologically invasive impact that social and environmental issues have on our everyday lives. Rather than trying to fix these complex problems, his work is intended as an irreverent celebration of our increasingly dystopian future; it's basically home decor for the end of the world. He currently lives and works in Rochester, NY.
