Vulnerable Ecologies, Solo Exhibition, 2009
The Artleague, Houston, Houston, Texas, USA
This exhibition contained the first version of 'Flood' (see first and second images) developed into a much larger installation in York 2010. In the background is the wall map 'America' depicting the typography of the land.
'Vulnerable Ecologies' was made entirely from 12 tons of recycled computer components that were manipulated and transformed into a monumental sculptural installation. Highlighting the materials beauty the forms begin to resemble architectural structures and organic matter, seeping into the gallery space and surrounding us with their toxic exquisiteness. The computers have been dissected, their innards exposed, revealing the underbelly of the machines we take for granted, an autopsy of our consumer society.
