This image resembles some notion of a laptop with the screen turned away from the viewer. Is it hiding something? The back of the screen faces the viewer with a staccato rhythm of horizontal bands of black and white that calls to mind the binary circulatory system of one’s and zero’s which is the lingua franca of communication devices. The back seems to be expandable like an accordion or a venetian blind, suggesting pliancy and also evoking a presence that is quite ‘shield-like’ at the same time. The screen itself is not viewable, however an aura of lavender suggests that it’s ‘on’.
