We seem to notice technology only when it frustrates us. When it works, it’s practically invisible. So what happens if we look at tech outside its context of utility? Does it become beautiful? Creepy? Is it kinda funny? These are a few of the issues driving the work of Evan Desmond Yee, whose dystopian Apple Store is on display at Fueled Collective until the end of September. For this installation, Yee constructed each constituent piece from scratch—from the tables and shelves down to the aluminum housing around those rainbow pinwheels. We got a chance to see it and talk with Yee about kaleidoscopes, Kanye and the average human life span.

Photographers throughout history have doggedly pursued their specialty subjects, and the great ones have left indelible marks on the art. Henri Cartier-Bresson looked for the “decisive moment,” a concept now at the heart of photojournalism. Ansel Adams mastered landscapes, creating compositions filled with detail and depth. Blending the artistic styles of these two icons, contemporary Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky shoots vast natural landscapes transformed by industry. At a quick glance, Burtynsky’s unique images seem almost abstract. But hidden within each is a staggering degree of detail.

We may not live in an era of grand, municipal artworks à la the Works Progress Administration, but worthy commissions are still very much alive. A year after Grand Central Terminal’s centennial, New York–based artist Elinore Schnurr has completed a large-scale painting of the famous railway station. This triptych, titled August Rush, is now on permanent display in the Queens neighborhood of Long Island City.
