Using text culled from military cadence songs with images from training films and field manuals this series titled, "Cadence", reflects back language from the military that has found its way into the public, creating a double entendre and conflicted reading of the work. The work also alludes to the role instruction plays in indoctrination and the forming of a communal mind. Ultimately revealing the dynamics between control and protection, and how we sacrifice one for the other in order to feel safe, and at times, part of something larger than ourselves.
