"There's a wire injected under my skin a few days before an event and connected to that is a wireless transmitter. That device communicates my blood-glucose levels to the receiver unit, which is mounted above my steering wheel." - Charlie Kimball
Using board photographic strokes the project offers both bold and nuanced vignettes on themes of contemporary mobile technologies, connectivity and our personal attachments to the devices as facilitators.
Often shown are installations, temporary sculptures or performances that exist solely to present the themes photographically.
In a world where we are constantly connected to wider networks of devices and people through hand held devices and electronics powered by lithium batteries, created from mining rare earth minerals, the images aim to present the subtle absurdity and elegant acceptance of this new era either through elevating the mundane architecture of the technologies, replacing objects or juxtaposing them in surprising positions.
Visually described is a ‘newer’ non-place built on wifi with a constant connection to nature, biology and the visceral desire to be in touch with the objects and methods of technology.
