Dustin Ordway

Dustin Ordway presents a work-in-progress that was originally inspired by the sculptural process of life-casting and creating replicas of the human body. Ordway addresses how our society is confronted daily with reproductions of the human form, in places ranging from functional architecture to clothing to media. This work proposes that the stark reality of our bodies can be shocking when juxtaposed immediately with these recreations. The presence of this juxtaposition hopes to elucidate that the one material we cannot recreate ourselves in is the organic flesh and blood of our real bodies.

Dustin Ordway is a performance artist and maker of things. Coming from a dance background, he identifies as an interdisciplinary artist, following the medium that most suits the message. Right now he is excited about smashing together sculpture, dance, and physical theater all together in one living vessel.
