Boxed World

William D. Hicks is a photographer who lives in Chicago. These works explore the interrelationship between natural subjects and technology. In Night Lights, the leafless tree makes a half-hearted appearance, modestly occupying a small portion of the frame. In Boxed World, we don’t see the literal earth at all, only ghostly attributes we might associated with an image of earth after its digital deconstruction: its spherical shape, its pixilated colors.
