Controlled Technology

Working collaboratively with another classmate, we had to figure out a way to connect two different found objects into one piece of art. As we got to brainstorming we began to think of the connection of man and technology. We realized we wanted our piece to make a statement about the puppetry of technology that man is so often controlled by. After furthering this idea we began to think of objects that would relate to this theme. My partner immediately thought of a computer mouse. To go off of that, I had the idea to portray the computer mouse as a real mouse in the way it could be held. I wanted to capture how people stereotypically hold a dead mouse by its tail. We then decided to use wires as the connector and wrap them around the entirety of the gloved hand  to depict how technology has overtaken man in his everyday life.
