Technology has spread into everything from cars to washing machines. Even artists, who used to rely on paint and clay to convey their message, are now using technology as the focus piece in their exhibits. An excellent example of this fusion is the Electroboutique exhibit at the Science Museum in London.
Russian artists Alexei Shulgin and Aristarkh Chernyshev are the geniuses behind the “Creative Consumption” exhibit which features a spiraling iPhone, a warped iPod and a dog using an iPad. According the exhibit’s description, it uses “languages of pop culture, media and art histories, framed by a tongue-in-cheek appropriation of the language of corporate marketing speak.” As someone who gets a lot of PR emails, I think I would enjoy this show.
The exhibit debuted in November and runs through February 14 at the Science Museum in London. It’s free and would be perfect for an weekend afternoon.
