Zombieindex.us (2013)

Zombieindex.us is part of a multi-media investigation prompted by the question: what is a zombie? The website consists of a zoom-able drawing, a collection of names of people who inspired the drawing, and a network of links embedded inside the pronouns I, we, you, me, and us. The website explores the ever-expanding breadth of possibilities of what a zombie can be. In the drawing are many of these possibilities alongside other zombie-ish entities and artworks. Emphasis is placed on the amount information needed to portray a humanoid figure, and thus figures range from detailed and recognizable, to iconic stick figures, or from black-and-white outlines to rendered colorful paintings

Full Description

Artist Statement

Zombies provide a fascinating middle-zone between alive and dead, individual and group, inside and outside. Therefore, the hope behind the website is that it can be a celebration of inbetween-ness and the grotesque without necessarily glorifying violence. Much of George Pfau's art seeks various modes of depicting and discussing the human body in an in-flux, in-between state. His projects take on the notion of the zombie, in an attempt to exonerate this portrayal of in-betweenness from negation or stigmatization. For more information visit: http://www.georgepfau.com
