presents artists who transform media culled from mass production including Styrofoam, Plexiglas, paper, and pieces of plastic to create works that articulate a decidedly hi-tech aesthetic. Reflecting the post-industrial and technological times in which the work is produced, the varied pieces in technocraft make reference to the biological sciences, space travel, virtual reality, computer parts, and engineered landscapes. These technology-inspired works, however, belie the hi-tech manufactured appearance of their construction and materials; each is systematically and meticulously produced not by machine, but by the artist's hand. technocraft examines the tension, contradictions, and synthesis between the mass produced and handcrafted.
