Elements of the Motherboard #8

Elements of the Motherboard #8

description

Elements of the Motherboard is an ongoing series of mixed media paintings with collage elements. The title refers to the way a computer motherboard functions to allow communication between various electronic components, and to the idea of the motherboard as a simplified version of “mother earth.” The motherboard represents networks that are formed when a community of living organisms and nonliving components interact within an ecosystem. In both examples, if one element isn’t working or is out of balance, the whole system breaks down.
