Penelope Umbrico is best known for appropriating images on the internet from sites like Flickr and Craigslist, which she then manipulates to construct large-scale images or installations according to a minimalist aesthetic. Broken Sets (eBay) (2009–11) consists of a series of images found on eBay of broken LCD television screens; the images are cropped, turned on their side, and printed onto metallic paper, resulting in an abstract grid of images that obliquely critiques the banality of consumer culture.
