TotemsThis catalogue of industrial relics is looking forward from the past inviting the viewer to place their own theory of what this post-apocalyptic bricolage might be. Re-reading the familiar in an unfamiliar territory making our own assumptions of what these purposeless tribal sculptures of reconstructed fragments might be. These carcasses of machines have outlived their original use instead drawing our attention to the materiality of the forms; they are shadows of the past given a new future. They are a readymade art object that only exists in the photograph. They are re-invented to provide a new function, they are a contrast of a dream world and the objective of the machine. They have become an apparatus of the imagination.
