Abstract (English)

"Aimée Henny Brown explores tropes of the Wild West with an installation of combined multimedia and visual elements. Inspired by Western pulp fiction novels, Brown’s work replicates and deconstructs the images that dominate our perception of the old West.

Brown delves into the history of the settlement of the West and the cowboy myths that live on from the period. With a series of Western novel covers, Morse code messages, a video projection fed through a heliograph mirror, and a miniature landscape, Brown creates a multifaceted examination of representations of the West." -- Publisher's website
