Depicting the Future: World Map Made of Recycled Computer Components
Can you think of a more creative way of emphasizing on the idea of a future digitalized world? We ran across this impressive installation belonging to Susan Stockwell , an artist usually taking on projects consisting in large scale installations, sculptures, drawings and collages. Her art emphasizes on issues of ecology, geo-politics, mapping, trade and global commerce. In this post, we would like to present Susanâs recent work, entitled “ World ” and consisting of a world map made of recycled computer components supplied by an IT recycling company. The project was commissioned by Bedfordshire University, UK, and was installed in the atrium of the new student building on their Central Luton site. Whether the computer pieces employed for a certain word region have a hidden meaning or not is probably something that only the artist can tell. What is your stand on this modern art installation and what do you believe it is trying to communicate?
