Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Daniel Everett. I’m an artist and professor. I make images, objects, and videos - all with varying degrees of success.
What inspires you?
Urgency. Fluorescent lighting. The inclination to write manifestoes. Nondescript architecture. Street Fighter.
What themes do you pursue?
I feel like my work is a break up letter with modernism, although a part of me hopes modernism will take me back and start keeping its promises.
I attempt to court an office supply store aesthetic.
My sister always told me that one day she would go and live deliberately. I’ve been looking to get a head start.
