“It’s All Going Back” – UTSA Satellite Space
Everything is going back in Mat Kubo’s MFA thesis work, from the frames on the wall to the tool boxes he fills with cereal. “It’s All Going Back” is an ongoing project in which Kubo interacts with store-bought objects, which he documents with still images and videos. Kubo uses mock infomercials, how-to clips and karaoke pushing his audience to question their relationship to the objects they buy. The items are then returned to their original packaging and retail locations containing documentation on DVD and contact information. Kubo’s work is incredibly insightful, mocking consumer culture. ‘It’s All Going Back” will be on display until April 22.
