Artist Talk: Taylor Moon
Taylor Colette Moon is a contemporary artist and educator whose primary medium is poetically narrated animations. In Moon’s exhibition, she investigates how fast-food signage, carnival lights, highway noticeboards, casino digital signs, and billboards tower in the sky like colorful, waving flags. Moon considered how each of these elements represented their own subcultures in American nationalism and how there is an aspect of spectacle to these signs. The talk will explore Moon’s creative process and how she metaphorically compared everyday street signs to flags that nationalized a different aspect of consumerist culture.
