'Black Metal Daisy' is multimedia artist Tucker Stilley's recreation of the journal of Daisy, who lives in an unrecognizable future - one just around the corner. With prints, soundscapes, and video, Daisy documents her fragmented, incomprehensible life.
Diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) in 2005, Stilley is now mostly paralyzed being able to only use his eyes to make his art. He uses a bizarre hybrid PC/MAC eye tracker system where his eyes become the computer mouse.
Stilley is artificially – starkly – divided into tech…and spirit. Inhabiting a place where modernism and chaos theory collide, his lack of body necessitates new sources of intent, gesture and content.
