Adam Norton

Adam Norton’s work explores the effects of technology on the human condition. He repurposes scientific ideas from the recent past and the near future in an attempt to map out the mental and geographical landscape of our present. He has made work about space travel, virtual warfare and nuclear weapons. He is not only interested in how technology has altered our physical landscape but also how those changes have impacted on human behaviour.
