NEO EDO: DREAMS OF A LOST FUTURE
JOSHUA PRENTICE

Inspired by1980’s sci-fi cinema, special effects techniques and prolific surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali and Simon Stålenhag, Neo Edo: Dreams of a Lost Future is a mixed media exhibition that includes both miniature sculpture and landscape photography composed together in a juxtaposition of scale. Prentice explores the results of modern threats and catastrophes that play on his psyche. He confronts consumer culture and turns the ‘disposable lifestyle’ of modern society on its head by building key sculptural elements from discarded plastic and metal refuse. This sum of discarded parts is transformed to become a new creation and a beacon of hope against the unimaginative and destructive corporate driven lifestyle that seemingly dominates modern society.    

Enter the story of a forgotten future and leave with what we left behind.
