Jeanette May, ‘Fiber Optics’, 2018, KLOMPCHING GALLERY

Also available as 24"x16" (one total edition of 10)

The Tech Vanitas series is inspired by the Dutch vanitas paintings of the 17th Century—the Dutch Golden Age of still life. Tech Vanitas embraces luxury, honors design, and acknowledges the fleeting nature of earthly pleasures. These contemporary vanitas utilize digital photography to capture precarious arrangements of domestic technological ephemera: a coffee percolator and film camera teeter atop a shiny boombox that spews magnetic tape across the keys of an Underwood typewriter. May’s images of anachronistic technologies confront still life’s traditional tension between temptation and rejection of worldly goods.
