Booming Internet

Philip Kwame Apagya. Booming Internet. 2000

This image seems to be completely appropriate in light of the recent updates to the NAPOLEON website, as well as the current photography-infused exhibition by artist member Tamsen Wojtanowski.

Apagya constructs landscapes of entertainment centers, airports, and internet cafes on photo studio backdrops that visually oscillate between tongue-in-cheek stagesets and uncomfortably manufactured depictions of commodity culture.  To see more photographs, and a wonderful description of Philip Kwame Apagya’s work, check out Apagya at Designboom.com
