Sydney Croskery is an artist working in Los Angeles.

Inspired by themes of overstimulation and consumption, my work takes an anthropological look at society by researching items in our world such as commodities, media and landscape. Using a database system to collect and organize these disparate items, I catalog the objects' physical attributes as well as attach lyrical stories of their importance. This collected data allows me to perform search functions of the items to create a contemporary hieroglyphics using our objects as communication tools. In this way, the works attempt to send coded messages using the visual clutter of our society, abstracted and flattened by grays of graphite.
