DESCRIPTION
Jimmy Baker's upcoming exhibition is a collection of fragmented narratives and artifacts that regard the present as if it were unearthed in a time capsule from our near future. The chaos of digital culture is reflected in Baker's variety of working mediums. Classical portraiture, iPods, photography, sculpture and hacked cell phones describe a variety of global concerns that accumulate into a grim dystopian future. The sum of this global turmoil is more the subject rather than its parts. Baker contemplates the structure of information, and how we perceive events in hopes that we will step outside our moment in history.
