All of the artwork in Take It On the Chin. are representations of personal thoughts on the relationship between human existence, tools (technology), and the process of evolution. While reflecting on that relationship, parallels to The Transitive Property of Equality andthe essay 1914:One or Several Wolves? by Deleuze and Guattari appeared to reveal themselves. Those apparent parallels facilitated the formation of a visual alchemy that was used to construct the artwork in Take It On the Chin., as well as create aesthetic and conceptual threads that connect all of the individual art pieces to each other.
Some of the threads: elements of previously living creatures used as materials, mold making and casting as a creative process, the color white as a generic symbol for tyranny, juxtaposition of archaic and contemporary technology, simulacra, organisms existing out of their naturally intended environment, A = B B = C C = A.
