“My relationship to Missouri and Kansas is—well, like most of us from the coast, they're the states we fly over,” says Allan McCollum “We think of them more as shapes than as places.” A California native who resides in New York, he's long been interested in the way that certain forms imprint themselves on viewers—the political map as Rorschach test.
