3st AiR Q2: Discomfort According to Matthew


The 3st AiR program is proud to announce our second collaboration  — Discomfort According to Matthew, an installation within Hoffman’s Independence show at the Comfort Station in Logan Square, opening July 4th from 1-4pm.




Matthew Hoffman’s verbal stream of consciousness on life and its many rites of passage is converted into a sonic flame which licks a single virtual marshmallow dangling over a 60″ x 30″ campfire setting. Perfection is forged throughout life.

Discomfort According to Matthew will be viewed in the context of a series of new Independence works by Hoffman, focused on the experiences tied to moving from one phase of life to the next. A Motivational Sign, pictured below.


$2500 US
Edition limited to 1
