one man's junk
These hand-carved limestone electronics highlight the effects of technological obsolescence: today’s hot new device becomes tomorrow’s landfill. By transforming the 1990s monitors’ beige plastic, designed to be neutral, into stone, the logic of the devices become inverted. Formally, one man’s junk has a monumental and memorializing quality; but similar to the discarded, plastic originals the mode of display is abject and the forms are obsolete which provokes nostalgia, and (potentially) disdain. The limestone ‘electronic waste’ questions the tension between the original and the multiple, the disposable and the permanent, and the interactive and the inert.
