Digitally Enhanced Primate is a collage i created from old magazines… an article on the Large Hadron Collider is most likely the inspiration here (as seen in the background)
This image blends together my obsession with primates and technology gone terribly awry, blending it all together into one horrible, yet transfixing image.
Digitally Enhanced Primate is approximately 6 x 8 inches, UV spray coated, matted in white, and framed in black. This piece is one of 6 created for the HUMANATURE exhibit in 2010 at DAAC in Grand Rapids MI.
The exhibit was intended to express the intersection of society, or mankind, and nature.
To me it is a perfect mix of the natural world and the digital revolution…or is that evolution???
