  • In Real Life, Celeste Watson, 2012
    Digital print on canvas
     60 x 50 inches
  • This work explores the displacement of the human within its own environment. It was created in response to Richard Hamilton’s "Just What Was It That Made Yesterday's Homes So Different, So Appealing?" (1992). The model was built in SketchUp with the aid of open-source models from Google's 3dwarehouse. The landscape is an appropriation of Microsoft Windows XP's wallpaper 'Bliss'.
  • "We are too prone to make technological instruments the scapegoats for the sins of those who wield them. The products of modern science are not in themselves good or bad; it is the way they are used that determines their value" 
     
    — Marshall McLuhan
