Artist Statement:


    Participants use a computer interface to interact with Litt’l havoc by physically moving the shopping cart that contains it. Pushing the shopping cart propels the semi-nude artist as he pushes his own cart through absurd environments of old postcards, NASA space imagery, and historic street scenes of Florida.

    Interacting with Litt’l havoc, participants symbolically become the artist, transgressing cheesy landscapes of abandoned and fragmented memory. Constructed of found, borrowed, abandoned, and confiscated components, Litt’l havoc is a pathetic new breed of hack/junk/found interactive art.
