Nathan Stromberg  

Why do we assign memory and meaning to consumer objects of metal and plastic?

How is it that we experience the past through relics and what will the visual culture of the present say to those in the future?

These glimpses of the every- day, such as the shape of a chrome bumper and the stylized design of kitchen objects and period fashion, remain connections to real people through shared memory and speak to a collective national identity. In many ways they are modern icons.

The process of making archival images into re-contextualized artworks becomes a means to explore the past and its implications for the present.

The action of slowly remaking photographic source material into an artwork compels the viewer to reconsider what is depicted and search for its inherent meaning. The iconic object is given new life in a new context to comment on the ever changing American identity.
