Foreplay: Video Projection by Rachel Lee Hovnanian
A video projection on a vertical bed depicting four couples entwined in sheets staring at their electronic devices while ignoring each other. The work explores our dependence on technology and questions its effects on our human relationships.
Digital devices connect electronically to people, or to an army of media followers far away, which is great. But they also seem to replace the intimate reality of authentic experience.The video is part of the exhibition Plastic Perfect, on view at Leila Heller Gallery Sept. 4 – Oct. 18.
