“We expand our personal family life into a contemporary art conversation about family dynamics, suburban life and American consumer excess.This new kind of “suburban fluxus” generates work that documents and re-contextualizes our objects and possessions of self, family and culture, the role of the camera in contemporary art and challenging presumptions of the everyday.
We draw no line between the roles we assume in our lives and our art: we are the photographers and the photographed, and our examination of the idea of Family is dependent on the existence of our own. In the age of YouTube and American Idol, we have all become actors and performers. Reality becomes blurred: are we creating a documentary? A fiction?” http://hillerbrandmagsamen.com/
