In today's society, information is power. Technology is a fundamental instrument of power--and thus an object of our fascination and desire. In this installation, Leslee Broersma looks at the relationship between technology and desire; between technology and experience; and between technology and "place." She considers how computers dominate our experience via simulation. She questions how our desire for technology translates into a craving to "possess" the experience of technology, Whereas "value" has traditionally been related to rarity or uniqueness (as in the case of precious art objects), the prestige of ownership conferred by mass-produced, relatively cheap technology overthrows all such cultural assumptions.
