NO MORE TALKING: Portraits by Max Collins

Join us for the opening night of "NO MORE TALKING", a solo show by local artist Max Collins.  The opening event is this Thursday from 6-9pm at iPrintfromHome.

As Max writes, "No More Talking is a body of work fundamentally focused on the social and behavioral effects of digital technology. It is responding to a developing trend of how our behavior is becoming altered as a result of our connection and dependency to the digital tools around us. There is a population interacting with computers to the point where individuals have been diagnosed with internet addiction after displaying traits usually found in cases of substance abuse. The portraits in this series represent the expression and physical state of one of these addicts portraying a stare of blank apathy and disconnection; present yet absent. I've noticed with the development of products like the ipad, children are interacting with this technology at an incredibly young age, so I want to start focusing on the root of this digital addict behavior which is what you see here on display."
