Micro-utopia

Micro-utopia photographically examines the earliest personal microcomputers. The computers are photographed in a seemingly objective way, a typology first made popular by Bernd and Hilla Becher and the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf; however, the images have been digitally manipulated to include hidden references to the state of surveillance we now live under. While these systems are not as advanced as our current technology they do represent a time when the interaction between people and machines - as well as the communication of people through machines - was private and intimate.
