Continuous Service Altered Daily is a sprawling, site-engaged sculptural array, or, as David Brooks refers to it, an “asteroid field without a distinctive beginning or end.” Brooks has disemboweled a beacon of agricultural technology, a 1976 John Deere combine harvester, into hundreds of individual components, ranging from the iconic and specific to the common and standard. Produced on the occasion of David Brooks: Continuous Service Altered Daily, on view at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum May 5, 2016 to February 5, 2017.
