Christopher Nickel: Stele
July 2nd - July 30th , 2016
Opening Reception July 2nd 6PM-9PM
"We live in a time of unprecedented change, driven by constant technological advancement that is manifest in every aspect of our society. As we look towards a future of near limitless virtual exchange of information, our present world of physical structures accelerates towards the past.
Working primarily in photography, my art practice acts as a mechanism through which I search for the physical imprint of these unceasing revolutions and the residue of the stresses that result. In the process, I find myself sorting through the landscape of a past that is being steadily overwritten, a present that continues to consume, and a future that is uncertain. These ruined pillars serve as monument, or perhaps memorial, to an embodied future that is already obsolete."
