Anti-Awkward Tech, 2013
Anti-awkward promo devices, wood, LED lights, Anthropology display case
Amber and Adriana's second collaboration project. Exhibited in Worth Ryder gallery in Spring 2013. This piece explores the language and modes of productization, it's connection with art whilst existing and functioning in the Bay Area; a territory of start-up and starving artists.
The questions and exploration of the boundaries between art and production are explored through the idea of awkwardness and our generation's obsession with new quick "fixes".
