This Space Intentionally Left Blank
New Work by Tom Loughlin
curated by Amy Cancelmo, Root Division
January through March 2015.
Former Root Division Studio Artist, Tom Loughlin presents This Space Intentionally Left Blank, a new body of work exploring intersecting social systems in the world of financial planning. Loughlin’s multi media works highlight the abstraction of financial exchange, and track the evolution of transactions that, although they have roots in basic collaborative exchanges between people, deviate largely from that original form.
Loughlin’s work questions how systems are built to facilitate collaboration and collective negotiation of social landscapes. Those constructs include language, narrative, ideology, and spirituality. He is interested in the way these systems fail – not just the way they can break down, but the manner in which their proper functioning can obscure our ability to see things as they really are.
