This piece was part of a solo exhibition at the Sheldon Jackson Museum, “Filling Empty Spaces: Attraction and Distraction” In this show, I use my artwork to represent the numerous and erroneous ways we fill an emptiness within. For each piece, I name what we pursue, followed by what it is we really seek.
Titled “Technology: Seeking Connection,” this carving shows our different senses, but they are severed from each other. The faces on the bottom are people trying to connect, but unable to. The abalone inlay at the bottom represent the ones and zeroes at the basis of technology.
