Documentation takes the form of a bespoke video piece in which the artist’s sculptural works with defunct, recalled and dangerous children’s toys of the ‘80s and ‘90s converse and collaborate in ritualistic summoning, combining childhood memories with fears of those memories’ perversion.


Sydney G. was born in Monterey, CA, in 1995 and grew up traveling the globe as an “army brat” raised, for the most part, in Stuttgart, Germany. Using sculptural installations, object modification, instant film photography, collage, robotics, and time-based media, she harnesses the power of objects to explore and articulate the simultaneity of time.
