Short Circuit is a photo-media investigation into our electrical consumption and the ‘trash and treasure’ culture of Western commoditisation. The exhibition examines the form and function of the ‘electrical artifact’ using a combination of photographic and moving image work.
As part of the exhibition at eye2eye , the public is being invited to drop off their unwanted electrical goods to the gallery. Sam will be producing a series of electrical still-lives from the appliances that are left at the gallery, shooting in a baement studio at the gallery. NO LARGE ELECTRICAL ITEMS ie. washing machines, dryers, televisions etc.
