Christopher Priestman

Fine Art

Christopher Priestman plays with data, appropriating large swathes of digital media, text and image. In objectifying this intangible, virtual media, he attempts to visualise and document the sheer breadth and omnipotence of media, but also to deconstruct the continuing relationship larger society have with their devices and cyberspace.

Through processes related to ideas of permanence and temporality, familiar content found by the side of the digital highway becomes a physical object to be experienced, context removed. What remains is simulated, an object probing just what it means to be, in front of, and behind the computer screen.
