Advancements in electronics, logistics, and the birth of “apps”, have made our lives more convenient than stores. Technology has created a state of constant connection catering to an on-the-go lifestyle, of which many of us have inadvertently adopted. For some, this virtual world has become a place of comfort much like home. When the natural world lacks stimulation, becomes mundane, or inconvenient, our devices become an opportunity to escape. I suspect our relationship with technology is suspended somewhere between conveniency and distraction. This body of work explores the role technology plays in our lives, and questions whether constant connectivity is leading to a deeper disconnect. Cyanotypes reflect the natural world around us, as the history of the process is rooted in architecture and plant documentation. Paired together, the architectural blueprints and the nuclear family reference the idea of home and where we find comfort. Are virtual spaces providing the same level of comfort we feel at home?
