This installation was built in direct response to the space it was to be shown in, using items from my collection of electronic junk.
The starting point was to create a kind of lab environment. I was imagining some beings totally distant from our culture excavating all our old tech and using it to try to build up an image of us.
The decontextualised objects: computer components, wires, spinning fans and electroluminescent cables cover multiple surfaces, creating their own micro-narratives and relationships. Often these narratives are to do the basic physical processes of the universe: gravitational forces, natural morphologies, creation and destruction, or entropy.
The piece is called Forensic reconstruction #00-23.7.6 – this is just one of an infinite number of permutations.
This piece was created for my MA show. I discuss it further in this video interview.
