Paul Kopkau’s ‘Yard Shadow: Nokia’ & ‘Yard Shadow: Samsung’ appropriate the commonplace black silhouette form of the suburban lawn ornament. By utilizing graphics of generational and visual technology—the early graphic brick mobile and the sleek smartphone—and scaling-up these quaint decorative structures, Kopkau highlights the increasing mediation of everyday life.
