Steeples reaching to the heavens
Steeples reaching for the heavens began as my response to seeing people increasingly spend more and more of their lives looking down at their mobile phones, oblivious to the world around them. My interest turned towards the support structures underpinning these needs and their impact on the land, both urban and rural. This project is a collection of cell towers in the New Zealand landscape. The towers are ubiquitous and mingle in our surroundings, some in a covert manner, others quite conspicuously, yet we mostly ignore their presence. But it is their rising proliferation that reminded me that we are forever entangled in modernity, wherever we are.
