This solo exhibition, presented as part of CIT Science Week 2015, includes some of Pauline’s Degree Show works, and a number of new pieces developed since graduating in June 2015. Pauline experiments with the materials and components found in a common household object – mining it for new potential after it has been declared obsolete. This process of re-examining and re-interpreting something, and finding uses never conceived of by its designers or manufacturers, is relevant far outside the world of Fine Art. As our culture and environment become ever more saturated with new versions of old technologies, new composites of old materials, obsolescence is a design feature necessary to keep the wheel turning. Consumers are discouraged from understanding how their devices work, replacement is the best option if anything goes wrong. Pauline brings a constructive curiosity to process of dismantling technology, and feeds the parts back through multiple artistic methods – just to see what happens.
