The Pet Shop Boys video “Invisible” might be as good a way as any to first consider the work of video-collage-conceptual artist Brian Bress, whose Orange County Museum of Art retrospective “Make Your Own Friends” features his trademark hi-def optical illusion, puzzle-piece and delightfully unreliable narratives or mini-dramas, suggesting the logic of shadow puppetry and silhouette. Playing tricks on the eye, and at the same time depending on it, his interactive screen-canvasses insist their way into the diorama of the viewer’s own brain, whether painting or sculpture, digital or physical objects. Funny, iconic, playful, autobiographical, you can’t make— as in invent— too many friends.
