New Existence

Jun 28, 2016 - Daniel Everett

Thank you for having me as guest blogger! For my last post, here is another ongoing series of my work titled New Existence. The title New Existence comes from analytics data linked to my website. When sorting through the search terms that ultimately brought people to my site, “New Existence” repeatedly came up. It felt like an appropriate encapsulation of the tone and motivations driving my work – the hope of a new life through technology and order. This series is made up of images of abandoned office equipment and surveillance devices, interrupted grids and cloudscapes – reflecting a conflicted relationship to the promises of modernism and the aesthetics of progress.
