GESAMKUNSTWERK BOWL

Originating from my interest of data visualisation and the use of technology within the production of art, the two bowls that I have created are a visual representation of the difference in popularity between Art and technology, with one bowl representing the 15,000 people who visit the busiest art gallery in the world each day and the other representing the 25,000 people who visit the busiest Apple store each day.

My aim was to highlight the potential devaluation of art due to the rise of technology and how the focus on physical art has shifted to a more technological environment with art no longer being viewed in physical form but rather on a phone/ computer screen. I wanted to highlight how one technology brand can attract such a demand and outnumber the attraction to potentially the most prestigious art gallery in the world.
