My work illustrates the mediation of the relationship between humans and technology in our theorized post-humanist existence. As material products become a second-rate commodity, the product of information, or disinformation becomes the most valued resource. I like to show the dichotomy between nostalgic ideas and objects of our past, with newer trends associated with our dependence upon technology and the future trajectory of our existence. I hope my work engages any regular person walking by and creates questions within the viewer about their own role in our late capitalist society.
