Cosentinoworks (MFA Thesis)

This documentation repesents a Masters Thesis exhibition, in partial completion of the requirements for a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Rochester Insititute of Technology. The work is accompanied by a written thesis available from the RIT Digital Media Library (DML). The exhibition explores my inquiry into self (self representation) and object through conceptual explorations in the mediums of video, performance and sculptural installation. I use the title of the exhibition as a cue to explore the double meanings and multiple interpretations at play. The works explore identity through relationships and narratives employed in the use of recorded performance and exhibition display. Symbols and symbolism in the works operate in creating a tapestry of meaning and interpretation through associations to historic form, particularly Minimalism and Romanticism. Throughout this exploration I refer to personal stories and biographical references I continue to use in my current practice.
