Christina Hunt Wood’s found object assemblages are made from deconstructed beer cans found in ditches along the rural back roads in her predominantly white northern Catskills community. For the artist, the cans represent seemingly insignificant micro-rebellions that, when presented in a totality, have deeper meaning. Wood, who is African American, uses the discarded “road soda” cans as a metaphor for racialized aggressions that can be normalized or assigned as unique, but highlight an ugly cultural phenomenon when organized as a collection.
