Abstract/Artist's Statement

Technological innovation began long ago, and if we start at its origin, and slowly breakdown its progression to present day, a significant role, and purpose begins to emerge.

Moreover, there is much to be discovered surrounding the role of technology within income inequality. How much of the inequality and progression of trends can we attribute to technology? Will technology displace the majority of human labor hours? It is becoming more clear, as new research is completed, that technology has not even begun to run its course, and that human labor is definitely at risk, but to what extent?
