Project Description

Patrick Rock: Face It You’re Hippies, August 15 – September 12, 2009. Installation view. Springfield, Oregon: Ditch Projects, 2009.

In Face It You’re Hippies, anti-sociologist Patrick Rock spends six days living in a bunker below the Ditch Projects space, using that time to obsessively and painstakingly construct a physical manifesto of Oregonian identity designed to turn the viewer into salt at a single glance. Details are fuzzy, but the following statements are certainly true: something is going to burn, something is going to die, and the landlord is going to be pissed. Rock’s tenure will culminate in a neo-pagan anti-potluck on Aug. 15 featuring a musical performance by cock rockers PISS
