Former AiOP artist Leon Reid IV and artist Ryan Seslow want to take you on an excavation of the evolving landscape of technology, but they need your support! Their installation, “Technophemera,” which will be visible at the Hillwood Museum on the campus of LIU post on Long Island will use concrete and cast replicas of outdated technological devices to show how “[with] new digital devices produced every minute, technology both reinvents itself and renders obsolete at an exponential rate.”

As explained by Reid:
“This project highlights the speed of technology’s evolution. With new digital devices produced every minute, technology both reinvents itself and renders obsolete at an exponential rate…The art students of LIU Post will be involved in the casting and molding process, making the project a community effort. In the end, the installation will be buried underground and serve as a time capsule, crystallizing the look and feel of technology as it appeared at the turn of the 20th century.”
The project will debut in the fall of this year and is slated to run through April 2015. Be sure to check out the project’s Kickstarter page for more information on the concept and techniques being utilized for its execution.
