The PCC Cascade Gallery is proud to present a video installation and video stills by Ohio artist, Michael Todd Arrigo. 

"Most of my recent work begins as simple interactions with my family. I preserve some aspect of these interactions as photos, video or audio snippets and display them in ways that expose the meaning and strangeness immanent in commonplace objects and activities. As an artist I think of myself as a “tinkerer”. I go into the studio and take ideas, language, electronics—everything apart to see how it works. I attempt to put these bits and pieces back together in ways that expose underlying structures and unexpected tensions in the fabric of the everyday. I am increasingly interested in making work that reveals rather than conceals my messy process of experimentation in the hope that viewers will enter into the spirit of playfulness and shared discovery."
