Title of Art Piece: Progress
Category: Mixed Media – 2023
Student/Artist’s Name: Mary Clark
School: Palmer High School
Grade: 11th
Artist Statement: This piece comments on how the digital age has killed physical media in the name of progress. It is no longer common to actually, physically own media; CDs, DVDs, VHS and cassette tapes have all bent to the overwhelming tidal wave of streaming. This means that media censorship is more easy to fully execute than ever before- it is now possible to destroy nearly every existing copy of a piece of media, all with the click of a button. Despite this overwhelming dystopian reality, the death of physical media is seen as positive progress, and something to be celebrated.
