Title: 
  • Boiled Down
Degree: 
  • Master's
Abstract: 
  • In this thesis I go into the spark that fuelled my graduation project for my MA studies and how it has evolved over the research period. I skim the surface of the term technological unemployment and what effect it has to overlap it onto my art practice.
    I examine my work in the studio, I go into the methods I use to gather materials for my works, mostly found scrap electronics. I use Heidegger's ideas on the material aspects of works of art and machines to reflect my own opinion on the matter.
    I go in some detail into two of the pieces I set out to work on for the graduation exhibition and how I intended to morph together two of the main focal points I have had over the course of my studies.
    In the final chapter I describe the four works I exhibited in the graduation show. How they function and in some cases how they cease to and how that led me to become a much larger part of the exhibition than I had anticipated.
