    INVESTIGATE THE UNKNOWN, ATTACK YOUR ARTWORK, SPEED, VELOCITY, SOUND, DOOM, LISTEN TO METAL AND THRASH AROUND, LISTEN TO EVERYTHING AND NOTHING, TRANSFER SONIC EXPERIENCE INTO VISUAL EXPERIENCE, DISSECT PARALYSIS, INVESTIGATE PANIC ATTACKS, COUNTER EDUCATE, LIVE IN FLUX, FALL IN LOVE, LIVE IN THE CLOUDS, GROUND YOURSELF, DESTROY IDEAS, BUILD THEM UP WITH FRIENDS, WEAR A UNIFORM, CONFUSE YOURSELF, DO SOMETHING UN-RELATABLE, DEPRIVE YOUR SENSES, CONFRONT TRAUMAS, QUESTION YOURSELF, EXPLORE NEW PARTS OF THE CITY, BREAK THE LAW, MINIMIZE EXISTENTIALISM, MERGE ART AND LIFE.

    Tanner Christmas draws on the critique of artistic and social conventions through the disruption and redistribution of material, narrative and processes. The artist employs opposition while progressively creating order and disorder in rearrangement of narrative by destroying the old. Through the process of making, autonomous entities diverge from established reality, sequentially creating alternate timelines in a state of flux.
