Within the mechanic of modern society is an idea that to best live within our spaces we need to work together. These spaces may be large cities, suburban, country or coastal; but in each of these places, we cooperate to build communities and work together to create a harmonious existence. This machine, therefore, is a result of many modules that are required to work autonomously and in sync with one another to create social order. Based on the ideas of modular paper folding, where the individual piece supports the next to create a whole; Trigger Systems shares this idea. It abstracts and obscures the view of our landscape on the surface, sometimes it shows it with clarity and strength, and in other aspects, it is faint and feels unclear. It is when they come together, and form a whole that the various aspects of these spaces and places become our home.
System #1 was a finalist in the 2017 Fishers Ghost Art Prize for photography.
