True, False, and Floating Ribs
True, False, and Floating Ribs is a solo work that explores an order of operations that evaluates true or false to determine the response of true, Boolean Operators. The work reflects the overwhelming nature of determining the difference between true and/or/not false information. Inspired by white lies and disappointment, the work investigates information received and eliminates inappropriate hits that must be scanned before discarding, thus saving time and effort.
