BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Joshua’s work blurs the line between audience, artwork and performer, inviting the viewer to complete the art— Much like the all american spectacle of pro-wrestling, the audience is part of the performance. The action of entering into the art work as a participant generates a more authentic experience by suspending the social filters that we carry into the everyday life. Short uses cultural detritus as a point of departure. The inherited meanings found within caste off objects combined with his artistic sensibilities creates a altered space that frames contemporary American Mythologies and Rituals.
