Data Reliance 

Data Reliance is a commentary on technology and our rapid assimilation into becoming one with our technology.

We’re less and less able to function without our technology and have grown to need a constant influx of information, so much so that many cannot even walk somewhere without being plugged in.  As we become inseparable from our tech and our daily lives, reactions and emotions are controlled by how we respond to the devices in front of us, we blur the lines between human and not. While we continue to relinquish control to technology and allow it to become parasitically intertwined with our lives, it will become the dominate group, its language the most prevalent. 

Neither man nor woman are depicted in these pieces.  All figures are genderless without identity, as are our devices.
