Project Description:

The artist will create a web-based project that investigates the psychological and emotional connections between people and technology. The site will be conceived as part archive and part "final resting place" for obsolete technological objects. The project explores the concept of virtual space as both non-physical and quasi-spiritual and delineates a definition of what technology is. The site will also be used as an access point for participation: members of the general public will be able to send an image of a piece of technology they still own but no longer use with frequency, in conjunction with statements recalling the approximate span of time the tool was in use, as well as any relevant associative information the user can recall in connection to the object. The site will serve as a kind of funeral home/cemetery as well as a portal to the space between people and the technological objects they own and use.
