Statement from the press release:

Fictional color
Broken games
Retired diagnostics
Functional fixedness
Corrupted transfers
Without instructions


Using a variety of processes, this exhibition is a play on the photograph as document. Documents are analogous to tools; they maintain a specific functional fixedness and resist reconfiguration by the user (reader). Useful documents substantiate history, whereas useless documents have no history. What was full of information is now empty.
