Tech Totems

CONNECTED – 16.5 x 32 x 1.5″

MANTELPIECE – 9X42X2″

 

Over the past four decades, I have amassed a substantial collection of outmoded technological devices including vacuum tubes, calipers, watches and keys which I treasure for their aesthetic design qualities. For  my “Tech Totems” series, I enshrined some of these vintage utilitarian objects onto a variety of archaic supports including a printer’s typesetting tray, an antique mantelpiece, a hand-made checkerboard, vintage drawers and old cigar boxes. By transforming these mundane objects into artistic 3-D assemblages, I have elevated them to totemic status while commenting on the transient nature of technological tools.
