Collaboration with John Walker (johnfeeshy.com)
Exhibition held at 4Most Gallery & Studio (2/7/20 - 2/21/20)
Broaden Your Sense of Normal is a collaborative project by Mila Gajic and John 'Feeshy' Walker. The project reflects on the Gen Z experience of growing up amidst the school shooting epidemic. The duo intertwines experience, fiction, game culture, internet culture, and post-irony to explore themes of denialism, hopelessness, desensitization, social isolation, survivor’s guilt, inactivity, and persecutory delusion.
The pair utilized storytelling throughout this project. Through developing characters and worlds, they intertwine experience, fiction, game culture, and internet meme culture to create works that are portraits of the psyche of America's youth in the form of short films, sculptures, 2D and 3D prints, and games. In this way, they utilize characters and worlds as avatars to create larger reflections of contemporary issues, societal behaviors, and individual experiences.
The "Space Drill Y21K" arcade machine was exhibited back to back with the "Hot Shot Shooting Gallery" by Dylan Burgess and Jelena Pistinjat
