‘Plastic and technology’ is the first painting of the series that was developed. I was struggling for an idea and thought I would keep going with using plastic materials, from the previous painting, ‘Nature and Plastic’. The text in the painting has a repetition of can’t find you. That you can spend aimless hours on the internet and never even know what you are really searching for.
The next painting is of a computer screen with the sea pictured on the computer screen. ‘Dream’ and ‘hope’, these letters are on the key board. I was inspired by Speculative Everything where Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby describes society as not dreaming any longer but are hoping.
