Jessica Gondek, mixed media
In Ecstatic Technology: Enterprising Series, works are inspired by domestic utilitarian sources. Jessica Gondek’s process begins with digital manipulations from vintage advertisements for fashionable consumer gadgets for the home found in the Enterprising Housekeeper Catalogue and Recipe Book, a publication circa 1902. The digitally printed elements Gondek creates are generated in the cyan color to recall blue prints or plans. The digital prints create a foundation for the modification of the context of these household objects. The drawing medium in particular allows for both transparency and mutability between layers of information. The mechanical forms within these compositions are simultaneously transformed asserting an animated physical presence and internal narrative.
