In his installation “Push/Pull: Activating Media”, Lee Jones explores the relationship between people and media through the use of abstract photography and technology. The exhibition, on display Mar. 1-5, showcases Jones’ 12 abstract color photos in different configurations on over 100 HDTV screens throughout hhgregg—the national electronic store.
Jones’ installation is based on the idea posed by media theorist Marchall McLuhan that media can be divided into two different types: those that push (passive) and those that pull (active). Jones says, “I am working on a visual vocabulary that can be understood today through digital cameras and television by use of saturated colors, movement and pixels—changing the relationship between individuals and different types of media, physically and emotionally.”
The installation is up at hhgregg in Smyrna from March 1-4, 8-9 p.m., with a closing reception on Friday, March 5 from 7-9 p.m.
