Totem (Poles) is part of the Totem series. The piece uses wooden poles and EL wire, creating a balance between these conflicting entities. In using the word Totem, the artist evokes a spiritual reference fusing the idea of a natural material with technology and creating these emblems for our times. They serve to highlight our connection to one another, technology and the digital world we live in, looking towards the future and what the possibilities of this hybrid nature could be.
