Man at Computer (installations)
Cut packing tape adhered to the wall
The Man at Computer installations are made using brown packing tape that is cut to reveal the wall beneath it. Each installation is unique, made in reference to the space in which it occupies, and is destroyed at the end of the exhibition. The series in general investigates our growing intimacy with technology by bringing a private, common scene into the public realm. The drawings document the physical relationship of a man alone at night in the glow of his computer, alluding both to sexual exploration and erotic alienation. The brief existence of each installation reflects both the planned obsolescence of technology, and our own impending mortality.
