Abstract (English)

"Using Google™ image searches, Turner appropriates images that she then transforms through collage and screenprinting to construct her own contemporary or futuristic ‘products’—amalgamations of several objects that often combine the organic and the mechanical. During the creation process, the objects’ form and function becomes disconnected so that they appear familiar yet enigmatic. Turner entices viewers by enhancing the aesthetic qualities of the objects, simultaneously confusing viewers as to their purpose. Further inspection reveals multiple functions, some of which are incompatible or make the objects impossible to use." -- Publisher's website
