from UBC, this was a recreation project, taking a known image and photographing
it with a new take. I chose Edward Hopper's Automat. Hopper's lonely
depression era piece of a woman in an impersonal and, as far as we can see,
empty automat is modernized with the impersonality of modern technology, despite
its promise to unite. While people may be within feet of each other in a cafe,
they are likely to be interacting more intimately with someone else by way of
a virtual connection.
