MOTHERBOARD 2019

2019, recycled electronic hardware, flowers, weeds// Currently on display at NØ Show in Nevers, France.

Inspired by the considerations of technology's impact on the earth, I considered the constructed tensions between human 'advancement' through technological development and our need to care for the natural world around us.

On my daily walks in Nevers, France I collected wildflowers, weeds, and grasses that fought the urban-rural landscape to emerge between sidewalk and street. After each walk, I integrated the flora into a new discarded circuit boards. Later works in the MOTHERBOARD series include interactive elements that allow audiences to create visual responses seemingly from the flora itself. The work asks that viewers complicate reductionist binaries between themes such as masculine // feminine.; progress // sustainability; hard // soft; and artificial // natural.
