Herman Asselberghs Dear Steve
A MacBook Pro is taken apart with routine efficiency.
Dear Steve focuses on that loyal companion of the contemporary cultural industry - the laptop computer.
We watch as a MacBook Pro is taken apart with routine efficiency, as the 'workstation' is quite literally turned inside-out.
This ruthless disassembly refers to the backside, the inside and the underside of an unsatisfied society that is mediated by technology. You'll never look at this indispensible gadget the same way again.
