Clark's "projects," while utilizing humor, speak the language of conflict - a conflict between perception and reality, between seeing and believing, between thought and action. In this regard, his objects are "confrontational" distortions and exaggerations of ideas and their underlying assumptions which cannot easily be compartmentalized. They interrupt our everyday in a surreal but amusing way, encouraging us to ask, "Am I sure?"
