The Epic Saga - USB, I am your Father - The story of technology's rise and fall
About this Artwork:
The Epic Saga is about the story of technology, its progression, and its lost and forgotten forefathers. I borrowed from the Internet meme that borrowed from the Stars Wars - The Empire Strikes Back movie, although correctly, the quote is “No, I am your Father.” I opened the USB drive to show the flash memory chip inside. It stores 4GBs of data. This 3.5” diskette was made by Xerox (the copier company), hence the big X. These double high-density versions held 1.44MBs of data. Diskettes are a recently forgotten technology. You still might find some lying around the house or office. Massive data, movies, streaming, etc. are quickly pushing USB drives to obsolescence, the saga continues…
The artwork is framed in an 8"x10" black shadow box frame, with glass. All framing materials are acid-free. A narrative about the artwork that includes the artist’s signature is placed on the back of the artwork.
