Silent Auction- "Transgression"

Michael Gates

The main inspiration for the piece “Transgression” was to reflect upon the negative effects technology brings to our society. Conceptually, the following were considered; internet and technology can marginalize and exploit individuals and social groups. Lack of privacy, cyber bullying and narcissistic addictions to social media websites were all inspirations used in its creation. 

About the Artist-
Born in 1986 New Mexico, Gates has consistently developed and explored various mediums through formal apprenticeships and informal studio time.

Starting bid: $300
