“Boxcutter” Sculptures by Chris Gilmour
During my junior year of college (1988), I worked in the computer “lab” at Vanderbilt. This was back in the day when screens were black with green neon text and printer paper had perforated strips along the side.
While “correction fluid” and typewriters seem a thing of the past, they are still essential technology in developing countries that have limited access to electricity. This does not explain why the NYPD purchased over $900,000 of new machines in 2009. Apparently, they use them for their carbon copy forms!
Far more progressive, artist Chris Gilmour’s work is completely cutting edge.
