She was from Detroit but her name was Houston
This latest body of work is rooted in the plastic nature of our lives. When I was in college I saw a documentary called Synthetic Pleasures. It was about what the future would be like, Now 10 years on and we have already advanced further than that film thought we would. We have a tendency to frown upon and poo poo the plasticity of modern life, but what we forget is that things we view as being organic and "real" were once futuristic and scary, like steel and farming. I am of the mind that that right here right now is a beautiful place to be.
