For his exhibition, Totally Barely at NO FOUNDATION, David Hanes’ two new bodies of sculptural works address cultural developments in the use and distribution of images and objects. The smaller sculptural works in Hanes' Popular Objects series were created using trending items purchased on eBay. The objects themselves are coupled with digital photographs of themselves face mounted to plexiglass. The shiny photographs act as a digital mirror, simultaneously reflecting and cataloguing these objects. Together, these two series of sculptural works aim to represent the translation of auratic value from the dematerialized online world into physical space, questioning the possibility of these extracted objects holding any of their original desirability.

David Hanes is a visual artist whose trans-media practice explores the space bridging lived experience and art. His work describes a personal relationship to a visual culture that is linked to the underlying currency of everyday life. Exhibiting in both offline and online communities, Hanes has shown work in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Syracuse, Kansas City, Vancouver, London (UK) and the Internet. Hanes runs the "sincerity" blog echolessness.tumblr.com and is the co-founder of the online project yoguy.info. He currently lives and works in Toronto. Website: davidhanes.info
