Penelope Umbrico: MONUMENT
January 16 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Penelope Umbrico‘s MONUMENT explores the monolithic state of current technologies in relation to their obsolescence. Umbrico begins with the idea that all technologies – including the electronics we use at home and in the workplace – are in effect “black boxes” whose contents are largely incomprehensible to end users. Although we tend to think of screens as invisible and we never see the workings of our technologies, almost everything we learn and know these days is mediated through the filters of technology. Umbrico aims to demystify the black-box device and to engage the public in creative modes of transforming and visualizing the electronic detritus that accumulates in our homes and in landfills.
