Chris Rackley will talk about his inspiration for his Project Space Exhibition, “Life as a Mall Brat,” and his childhood experiences as a self-proclaimed “Mall Brat.”

Chris will discuss why he decided to depict these experiences through a variety of media – drawings, sculptures, and an interactive video – in order to explore his memories of a shopping mall in Duluth, Georgia. He will share his artistic process to recreates miniature versions of architectural elements of the mall—a place he wandered every day for ten years in the 1980s. These recognizable facades and embellishments are presented at different scales relative to one another, emulating the way memory can be fragmented and accompanied by a longing to reconstruct significant moments from the past.
