D Young V – Make an Effort
July 9- July 30, 2011 – White Walls, SF
The work for Make An Effort is a continuation of Young’s exploration of a theoretical post-apocalyptic San Francisco – a rebuilt world, full of new ideals, technology, religion and language created from scratch. Young poses the question “What would happen if people decided to restart civilization?” He points the viewer in this direction by loading up his new pen-and-ink-meets-wheat-paste pieces with invented and recycled symbols, alongside artistic renditions of current San Francisco residents. To obtain these images, Young worked in collaboration with local photographer Shaun Roberts to perfectly capture these San Franciscans as imagined versions of their own post-apocalyptic selves.
