Critiquing Technology (1995-2000)

In the mid 1990’s, the internet was a rapidly emerging, vast, fascinating and unknown frontier, full of myths, fears, fantasies and possibilities, so in 1995 when the Banff Arts Centre put out a call for a Narrative & Storytelling residency, I saw an opportunity to develop new stories about this technology. Discovering a George Pompidou Centre exhibition catalogue on Railways and their social and historical impact, I realized the Internet was akin to what the Railroad had once been. Using the exhibition catalogue as ready made framework, I proposed using Ceramics to explore Technology and was accepted into the residency. Works from the "Post-Technology Toxic Waste Bowl" series were exhibited at the Canadian Clay Currents exhibition at NCECA in 1996.
