Who's Got a Price on Their Head?

Cody Arnall’s work investigates themes of personal and shared histories. His installation, Who’s Got a Price on Their Head?, is a closer examination of aggression and the idea that we are building our own destruction through a desire for power.

 

Statement
My work investigates themes of personal and shared histories. With that in mind, Who’s Got a Price on Their Head?, is a closer examination of aggression and the idea that we are building our own destruction through a desire for power.

Robert E. Arnall was a U.S. Military Telegrapher at Operation Crossroads in Bikini Atoll leading up to the Cold War (peacetime).

I didn’t know my grandfather, but his memory bothers me though stories of his anger, alcoholism, aggression and the abuse he caused my father.

My father is not an easy person. 

In Paducah, KY, I witnessed an American Pit Bull Terrier chase, catch and eat a cat in a neighbor’s backyard.  A woman was on top of the dog punching it, and spraying it in the face with pepper spray.  The dog did not let go.  The cat and the dog were of the same owner. 

Mortality is inevitable.
