“Inundations and Icarianasms” sculpture by Doug Buis

“In these works, I examine our relationship with technology, referring to the differences between habit and ritual. Habit, I see as an activity or device used to reduce one’s consciousness of an event or thing, whereas ritual is one that increases awareness and allows a non-verbal perception of them.” – Doug Buis
