David Trautrimas: Industrial Parkland
Portfolio Introduction
At first glance Trautrimas' images may manifest as characteristic industrial landscapes, but their latent concept is the execution of a meticulous process of reverse engineering. Deliberately chosen consumer items are fastidiously dismantled, photographed and cataloged to create an architectural library from which a factory and its is surroundings are virtually "built" . A power drill literally becomes a Power Drill factory, a stapler becomes a Stapler Factory, with each object used to construct its own source of origin. The obsolete aesthetics of the source material (as perceived through a generational nostalgia) precepts a landscape on the declining edge of progress, in which both the manufacturer and the manufactured are eminently disposable.
