Wasteland IC IV

Eric Celarier's avatar Eric Celarier

What we do and what we say we do can be two different things. My work explores the hidden inner workings of the technological age, exposing the aesthetic and difficult nature of cyber media. Using trash as a metaphor for global and environmental choices, I stitch impractical quilts from circuit board that describe the contemporary world as a confusing, but beautiful, place where ramifications our actions are unclear. Size is an important aesthetic choice. My most recent work has grown in to mural-sized designs that allow the viewer immerse himself/herself in detail at close ranges, while enticing panoramic scans of the entire composition at distances. Each board can be appreciated as a separate artwork, but is undeniably unified to the whole, creating what Allan McCollum calls “simultaneous double perspective”.
