“Born to be Bored” responds satirically to an ever increasing boring experienced by modern society; a hole, an emptying, a longing. It is a negotiation of nostalgic and sterile definitions of ‘American-ness’ as they relate to the current socio-political climate. Whether looking backward or forward, “Born to be Bored” encourages a look around, a look through; a time for reflection on how we as individuals and as a society affect each other and our environments.
