Heidi Judkins, Senior Exhibition 2010 “Suffocate Detail,” a mixed medium piece by Heidi Judkins, Farmington, Maine

Judkins uses seemingly mundane commercial objects on a large scale. Consumerist objects made of utilitarian materials such as aluminum foil and plastic wrap are designed to pull the viewer in. The intent is to create a beautiful but overwhelming installation whose physical presence encroaches into the viewer’s space, perhaps commenting on “the glut and wealth of consumerism.”
