Opening Night Recap: David Hochbaum's You Are Not Falling, You Are Floating

Juxtapoz // Thursday, 25 Feb 2010

In weaving composite realities into his photo collages enhanced by drawing, painting, and more collaging, Hochbaum offers a rich visual discussion about history, astronomy, sex, and iconoclastic symbols.


“I am fascinated by the things we pick up in our waking life that transfer themselves into our sub-conscious,” Hochbaum told us in an interview before the show’s debut, “and conversely what we recall from dreams and accept as things that happened while we are awake.”


“I would hope that people could manifest some relationship to their own personal experiences or emotion.”
