Type A is a collaboration between Adam Ames and Andrew Bordwin. Working together since 1998, Type A create videos, video installations, photography, sculptures, and drawings that deal with issues of masculinity, territory, competition, and collaboration in contemporary society. Though competition runs through every element of existence, the demand put upon men to be competitive can be especially severe. This is initiated in childhood and continuously intensified; if one is “type a,” then these challenges are not only expected but also necessary to the definition of one’s character. Type A explores the ways in which men compete, challenge and play, and the resulting social and psychological imbalances, in works ranging from psychologically disarming to profoundly absurd.
