Several of the artists have elected to shed light on the internet’s negative affects by way of nostalgia, as they highlight what it has ultimately replaced. This approach is most clearly exemplified by Kristin Lucas’ colorful wax sculptures of obsolete technologies, as well as Michael Mandiberg’s laser-cut paper dictionary and daily newspapers, which have been rendered unreadable as a metaphor for their online alternatives.
