The photographs in Broken Sets (eBay) are cropped from images of broken LCD TVs I found for sale on eBay, where the televisions are sold for parts. The sellers turn the sets on while photographing them so that potential buyers can see that the electronics behind the screens still work. I became interested in the incidental beauty of the screens because they are derived from the failure of their own promising technology. By presenting these inadvertent abstract arrangements as formal compositions in their own right, I am collapsing the obsolescence and breakdown of new technology with the visionary aesthetic of Modernism. I print the images at 20” x 30” or 30” x 40” – enlarged to this extent, the highly saturated enlarged pixels create gridded color fields that further evoke Modernist abstractions.
