MFA Thesis Exhibition
April 15-May 7, 2023

I missed the Flaming Hot Mountain Dew drop on August 31, 2021. I bought some secondhand
on eBay for $20.00 + $21.65 shipping. The package arrived on October 19, shipped in a used
Amazon box with no packing materials. Two of the four cans arrived severely dented and
leaking.
“As neoliberal ideologies have dominated the past four decades we find ourselves navigating
the hyperreal, a condition where images have overtaken objects, sign value has undermined
material value, and distortions of the lens have colonized our vision. Within online platforms
information has become flattened, inconceivable violence appears alongside inconsequential
clickbait, and profit motives have excised any liberatory potential. Conspiracy and its theories
run rampant as old narratives are abandoned and austerity breeds alienation. Corporate
entities resort to more desperate and obscene forms of marketing logic to compete for the
attention of an increasingly precarious consumer class. Bandy’s work considers these events
through their material residue, brand collaborations, memetic objects, conspiratorial artifacts,
and sites of occurrence. Engaging with memetic image culture, the works are unfixed. Objects
and images shift form, each version further mediated than the last, pointing us towards the
pleasures and perversions of an increasingly virtual world.”
