Mass Market Alternatives
opening March 8, 2017 / 6-8pm Pinkcomma Gallery 46 Waltham St. Boston, MA Starting Wednesday, March 8, the Pinkcomma Gallery in Boston will be showing a collection of drawings, models, and videos documenting a collection of algorithmically-generated suburban homes by John Szot. conceptual statement: Industrialization has had a profound effect on the American suburb. Only American audacity could have concocted and executed the formula for mass-produced homes that dominates the suburban real estate market in the United States. And only in America could such a formula become an economic and political juggernaut, making places where matters of personal taste are amplified into cultural bulwarks. “Mass Market Alternatives” seeks to exploit the economic leverage and aesthetic principles of mass-market suburban housing in order to diversify its potential customer base and challenge the reputation of the suburbs as enclaves of conservatism and political conformity.
