TechArt examines the role technology plays in our lives through art. focusing on balance and simplicity, the TechArt series allows the beautiful structured complexities behind technology to be re-purposed into contemporary art. each piece is layered computer text, literature, comic books, computer parts, and other items to form multi-dimensional hanging art.
the entire TechArt series focuses on two different themes: our technological world & the people who use it.
cool fact: these TechArt pieces do not have a “right” way to hang. you can hang it from any side or direction that appeals to you. if you want, change it up regularly… it is like four different pieces of art in one.
colorful computer parts are often small works of art themselves, and while they would have been trashed are now recycled into something completely new. the expansion of the information technology field has intertwined itself into almost all aspects of our world, as well as into our culture. smaller TechArt uses cds as the canvas to create multilayered hanging 3d art, often focusing the influences technology has had on our world.
the TechPeople art experiments with organized chaos. bold black lines create linear facial shapes on top of technology text, comic books pages, or other informational text. these structured portraits are merged with items worn or used by everyday people. we are immersed in our technology. these TechPeople represent the duality of our social reliance on technology, both the positive and negative effects on ourselves.
