Generation X

26"h x 21"w x 13"d
Polyester

“This piece speaks of the so-labeled American generation of people and how during the course of their lives smart phones and computers have become intrinsic to society.  The abstracted figure is embracing a device, oversized in scale, to emphasize how much it capitalizes his existence.  Despite his intense focus on the device, which is supposed to give him pleasure, he still feels empty and hollow. The de-emphasized ears imply he hears nothing else, and is ignoring the larger world around him as it passes him by.”
