permutations of a monument: prints and digital works by mark napier
"In Smoke, a generative software installation projected on the gallery wall, the Empire State Building appears to soften and melt, writhing almost organically, then struggle to return to it's original form. Teetering on the line between organism and architecture, Smoke speaks to a morphological tension between static physical structures of power and those that are information-based"
"Mark Napier reflects upon the transition from monumental power structures, symbolized by skyscrapers, to the malleable, information-based systems of the digital age"
