The Polyester Projects, Anthony J. Meadows
and Elizabeth West
, is an emerging artist collective that seeks to question the influence of our ancient and pre-historic predecessors on our modern behaviors. We strive to develop connections between our past and present, and how this routinely gives us more insight into how we haven't changed rather than the opposite.
Human history shows us that we have always felt a satisfaction in completing rituals. Through our work we seek to expose how technology has simultaneously eroded and encouraged this behavior, and the correlation it has to ideas of property, our relationship to nature, history, and community. Through a collaboration of digital work and interactive sculpture we explore the role that technology has on our modern practices related to these ideas. It is vital to question the social and economic forces driving ideas of public, private and digital space and how this affects our relationships to our communities and each other.
