The Internet is a cultural object

Mi-tientes pastel paper, baking paper


This series of paper sculptures was created for the group exhibition, The Internet is a Cultural Object, at Brunswick Street Gallery, Melbourne, in 2015. I was inspired by my need to escape from a world of sensory overload. As we're now bombarded with more information than ever before, I wanted to create art that tells us very little. I chose particularly emotive or directive news headlines found on the internet as the titles of my work. Applying these titles to Formalist, non-objective pieces, completely devoid of prescribed emotion or direction, negates the potential power of each headline and, in turn, the power that the internet can have over us.
