Jonathan Monaghan – Video series

<p>The computer animated videos <em>Earthly Delight</em> and <em>Back to the Garden</em>twist iconic imagery associated with the Garden of Eden creation myth. In <em>Back to the Garden</em>, Monaghan humorously postulates the pastoral paradise of Eden as an organic foods supermarket. Desires and utopia are corporatized and clinical. The works suggest our uneasy and unfulfilling relationship with technology in the digital era.</p>
