Tech addicts: New art exhibition opens at Harris Museum
A new art exhibition aims to challenge Prestonians about their fast-paced modern life and addiction to technology.
Matt Wilde’s artwork will adorn the stairway of the Harris Museum until February and he challenges you to look away from our smartphone.
He said: “I witness on a daily basis people rushing around commuting to work, rushing around the shops, working extra hours and multi-tasking within the small periods of time available for family life. We are struggling to keep up with modern life.”
The series of paintings called Keep Up shows the familiar scenes of high streets of people absorbed in their mobile phones, netbooks, digital cameras and computer games.
Wilde is an artist based in Warrington, and all the work in the exhibition is for sale.
The exhibition runs until Saturday 4th February 2012. You can find more details on the Harris Museum website.
