A Work in Progress, 2014

Utilising the emerging technology of 3D printing and likening themselves to Victorians sitting still and silent for Daguerreotype photographs to be made, MacDonaldStrand have made A work in Progress to consider the changing nature of digital imaging in the public realm. These representations, which are modern now, will soon be considered old-fashioned, as their manufacture becomes supeceded by new processes. MacDonaldStrand are show here in various states of complteion or decay and set inside an acrylic box as fleetingly modern figures in a world that will soon make them outdated.
