Robert Barta

Work from his oeuvre.

Barta’s work is an playful recontextualization of commonly used objects that one would expect is intended to increase our awareness of our daily interactions with technology. These installations are works that rely on defied expectations and the existence of pre-formed relationships with these objects in order for the viewer to be “in on the joke”. At the same time that these pieces inform our understandings with objects in our daily lives, they are also rendered useless by Barta’s modifications. Therein lies the rub of the work, in order for us to consider the functionality of an object, we must remove all traces of it; except perhaps for the escalator ladder.
