PoTP (part of the problem), 2016

As one of a three-parted piece, this sculpture refers to designer couple Ray and Charles Eame’s legendary collaboration with the computer company IBM. The Eames were charged with making the brand accessible, in a time where few were familiar with these new technologies. As part of the campaign, they designed the IBM pavilion for the 1964 New York World’s Fair, producing a series of films and creating a complex environment for visitors to test drive this new co-habitation with computers. In essence, they presented technology as a new way of living, rather than a simple product. We can see here one chair from the Eames Office, given it a contemporary reworking using plexiglass, a material that seeks clarity. The chair becomes a living sculpture, employing still as well as moving image and assembled material. The question, Evans and Pattison are asking, is similar to the ones asked then: how do we, you and I, want to live in the future? For better or worse, it is a question worth asking of the things that surround us in our daily lives.
