Eric Pickersgill’s TEDx Talk

Eric Pickersgill's work was the talk of the ACP 2015 Portfolio Review, and it's great to see his "REMOVED" project become an exhibition. Here's an artist's talk about his work at TEDxBend "Do Our Devices Divide Us?"


"Artist Pickergill's photography series, Removed, went viral and touched a collectively universal nerve. He makes visible what so many have tried to explain about the ways personal devices alter human behavior, helping us relearn how to be truly connected in our device-dominated age.

Artist and change agent, Eric Pickersgill, explores the psychological and social effects that cameras and their artifacts have on individuals and societies as a whole. His viral photography series, Removed, has made visible what so many have tried to explain about the ways personal devices alter human behavior. We live in a time where the line between the real and virtual is nearly invisible. The use of personal devices is so common that the terms in which we use them is no longer discussed. Despite the accelerated proliferation of digital photographs, art still has the power to shape perspectives and alter habits. Eric is represented by Rick Wester Fine Art in NY and is on the Executive Board of Directors at The Light Factory."
