Obsolete Delete Statement Statement The site-specific installations in the series Obsolete Delete were informed by the increasing speed of technological obsolescence, the environment, and the collision of the two. With references to land art and the new topographic movement’s documentation of industrial intrusions on land, outdated technologies from my personal collection, and my family's, were installed in the landscape and photographed. Drawn from two of our culture’s most rapidly evolving sectors, these communications and entertainment relics set in pristine natural environments reflect the landscapes of our present and predict those of our future. As we firmly enter the era of a new anthropogenic environment these artifacts of capitalism and its demands of constant growth and consumption speak to the on-going environmental effects of unceasing updates, endless versions and humanity's insatiable appetite for the “new”. - D.E.
