2018 – Archival inkjet prints in light boxes
Holy Trinity comprises images of a smartphone, tablet and laptop — those three bastions of contemporary communication, entertainment and work. The three photos reflect on the influence these devices have on how we experience the world and how we interact with those around us. These screens have fundamentally changed our lives, in everything from the simplest task to the most fundamental way we perceive the world around us. They guide us through the real world, answer our questions and keep us company, day and night. They also re-define our social and amorous relationships and the ways we engage in them.
