Entropy is the inevitable and steady deterioration of a system or society. This exhibition examines new ideas of entropy in a technology-driven age. How is the collective experience of time altered with advances in technology and social media?  As technology advances at an ever increasing pace, artists are faced with the inevitable decay of the current mode of production. Like Robert Smithson’s Hotel Palenque we see notion of “ruin in reverse,” a simultaneous decay and renovation.

This project started eight years ago as a simple lamination test. I realized I could cut and shape the test into a board, much like vintage laminated surfboards. Eventually I had a gang of boards.

I saw the group of boards as unfinished or blank.  I started to think about the group as a  show, but they needed the artwork.  Artists were commissioned from the fine art as well as the street and lowbrow circles to represent the variety of styles in the Los Angeles art scene. The boards were coated with resin to protect the art and  unique travel bags were made for each board.

Most boards are disposable, bought ridden and broken. Longboards are usually ridden as a relaxed gliding and carving on flat surfaces, so these boards are not subject to the same abuse. I can imagine hanging these boards as art that you take off the wall and ride sometimes.
