Robyn Backen

9 Jul 2010 to 14 Aug 2010

In Connecting You, Robyn Backen looks broadly at the history and implications of mass communication. Backen's installation includes old phones and an audio component using phone conversations with JFK, both of which combine with the frequent use of circularity to evoke the power and ongoing relevance of telephone technology in contemporary society. Spiritual connotations of telephones and telephone technology are played against their banal and functional purpose.
