Meet: Christopher Baker

Baker′s aims to discuss the complex relationship between society and its technologies. Trained first as a scientist and only recently as an artist, his practice represents an uneasy balance of eager technological optimism, analytical processes, deep-rooted skepticism and intuitive engagement. Much of this practice is inspired by the interconnectivities – visible and invisible – present in the modern urban landscape.

One of his projects "American Toys" was created by combining images from every United States patent containing the phrase "toy pistol". The earliest image dates back to the mid 1800′s.
