In this series of new works, David Darts explores and playfully confronts uncomfortable-ness. The exhibition approaches discomfort primarily as a generative state, even if the experience itself is not always pleasant, a state that can lead to intellectual growth and provide artistic inspiration. From the trauma of a childhood drowning incident to the dysfunctions associated with misophonia, literally a hatred of certain sounds, he uses video, photography, and sculpture to examine the social and domestic aberrations that have resulted from his own lived discomforts.
