As an artist working in the field of repurposed electronic devices, I usually work with second-hand or found objects. An old suitcase gets filled with the chopped innards of a boom box and becomes a cold war karaoke machine. A World Atlas with a walkie talkie hidden in it’s hollowed out pages becomes an oversized talking text. While transporting these hand-held devices from place to place, I am often asked to explain my creations to concerned authorities or curious passersby. As one might imagine, reactions range from amusement to alarm. This installation features an array of custom-made gadgets (known as “snuitcases”) and the stories of how they have traveled far and wide to get to where they are now.
