"Network" at White Columns 1981, mixed media and camouflage environment with an active commodities trading screen

“Network” refers to the varying degrees of grey which exist in between and around the “black and white truths” which we are fed through the business, art, and commercial art systems which simultaneously bombard us every day…

The messages about government propaganda, business tactics, art school curricula, ad agency hype, and sexual blatantness are woven tightly throughout these formal elements, indicating many of the ways we blend them and hide them under the surfaces of our experiences.

– Barbara Cavaliere, Arts Magazine, February 1982
