Interconnexions 1989

In the same way as Fernand Léger's Popular Mechanics became synonymous with the industrial society of the 1920s, or the Pop Artists and Neo-Realists' celebrated 1960s consumer society, Interconnections proposes an iconography for the "networked age". A second installation, Telescoping, examines the legacy of the space race and the global village, and explores our relationship with objects such as the telephone, facsimile and computer keyboard. Our world of interconnections has accelerated time and broken barriers of distance, projecting us into a virtual labyrinth from which there is no escape.
