The between-ness of things -- the play of language as it is both spoken and heard, and as it infiltrates our everyday environment -- explains the gibberish phrases that populate the lithographed interiors of Luis Macias' "A Fine Monday Morning". Empty cartoon bubbles point to pieces and moments of decoration. The apparent oppulence evokes luxury, while the lonely aspect of the sumptuous objects is mitigated by a simple work ladder, or a sensational Central Park view. The patron, not visible, seems to be concerned with a particular type of decoration, a decoration shell, that could be interchanged for another style. This decor and fevered installation, for all its posh bravado, lacks human-ness, lived-in-ness, singular signature, individual style, or personality. The humanity is only there through the surrealness of the bubbles. These pictures were made as an installation record for the fabricator of handmade lamps and fixtures. That fabricator, namely Macias, used the photos as a tabula rosa for composing "A Fine Monday Morning", exposing the suggestions that make subtle, or conversely, automatic assumptions in conscious consumption and integration of our environment.
