A CBS Special Presentation
Select your print and framing options
A lot of my work uses relics of past, especially technology, to represent how our world changes. A CBS Special Presentation combines an old TV and advertisement with a Victorian wallpaper pattern, combining two different periods of the past, a simplification of the idea we are surrounded by an incredible range of history. The wallpaper patterns have a simple beauty with being somewhat complex in their repetition. The TV with rotary dials personifies how simple the television once was, without the dozens of menus and buttons on the control. At the same time, modern flatscreen televisions have that elegant exterior, while these older boxes have much more going on. And finally, the CBS ad bumper, those short moments are my memory of television growing up. I like images that are very quick and memorable, very similar to the nature of memory, you often break things down into their simplest version.
