Join us for a Talking Art in association with our group exhibition Relics. From GPS navigation systems to the abundance of social media sites, advancements in technology over the past decade have dramatically changed the world. They affect how we live, how we do business, how we acquire information and how we communicate. Dozens of devices and formats that were once considered cutting-edge technology are now regarded as obsolete. Many common items that were once ubiquitous have vanished from our lives. Typewriters, pagers, 8-track tapes, walkmans, answering machines, slides and slide projectors are true relics of the past. How does our society dispose of these antiquated objects of recent history? What is the effect of society’s desire to “upgrade” at every time a new technological advancement is announced?
