Artist and ArtLab Interns Take On The Consumer-Driven Society
PlatteForum proudly presents Mechanical Voids by Jessica Forrestal. While in residence, Forrestal collaborated PlatteForum’s ArtLab Interns to complete a site-specific installation inspired by the objects we encounter on a daily basis.
Much of Forrestal's work explores American consumer culture, mass production, consumption, and disposal of objects that are meant to promise functionality and life improvement. The artist riffs off of the authoritative style of a diagram and investigates the intersection of humans, objects, and environment.
