|"Disconnect" mixed media/ceramic/steel/acrylic|
I love teaching but when I spend the bulk of my time teaching or prepping for classes it makes it hard to find time for my own artwork. I'm trying to get a few pieces finished in time for an show at American River College. This is a piece I've been working on for awhile that I plan to call "Disconnect". It is inspired by my love/hate relationship with technology. I love technology and the way it has made our lives so much easier but I worry about the negative role it plays in our relationships, especially with the up coming generation. We are becoming more and more focused on our gadgets and there is a growing disconnect between the real people and things in our lives and our virtual experiences.
