Micro Meditations

Morgan Sims, Palisade, 2012

Morgan Sims’ Palisade, presented by Heaven Gallery, was an immediate MDW stand-out. As a designer and artist working in technology, I was captivated by its glow. Historically, a “palisade” is a wooden wall used as a defensive structure by the ancient Greeks and Romans. I immediately correlated this modern day palisade with our mobile screens, and how they can act as defense mechanisms from others. The colors in “Palisade” are reminiscent of the RGB used in LCD screens, the same screens that absorb our attention, playing defense against human interaction.
