As the Internet states, Albert Einstein once stated: “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction.The world will have a generation of idiots.” This body of work is a visual reference on how technology has influenced anything but growth whether that is in knowledge or society, just like the irony that Einstein never stated such a thing. Being a business owner in Upstate New York, I have developed a whimsical view of the daily environment surrounding me. We often tend to think that all technology advances us as a society/culture, but often we instantly forget about what has gotten us to the point we are at, as a society and within our lives.

In regards to technology, the idea that we are taking one step forward is often leading us to take one step back as a society. Whether that is by monitoring everything that happens in an environment or having the location become abandoned, we are losing our identity. Our society has become one where we are always building new infrastructure, buildings, technology, and advances while just allowing the used/old objects to be forgotten about or ignored. All the while, we feel like we must micromanage every aspect of our lives utilizing technology and nothing is private. The only time things are private is if it is above one’s pay grade. My images often have a subtle play on whether technology or other societal issues impact the environment one is viewing in my photographs.
