Q the Eye/09.04.15

Dear LakeCountyEye,

I've read your site and saw you've written about art in the past. I thought you might be interested in writing about a really cool exhibit that's popping up in our office.

We've turned one of our a meeting rooms at the Soho-based Fueled Collective into a twisted, dystopian version of an Apple Store. On first blush, it looks like a place where you'd buy an iPhone: it has all the same furniture and style, but the strangest and most fascinating objects for sale. The exhibit is a stinging commentary on how we're all addicted to gadgets, tech, and startup culture.

If you're in New York, feel free to drop by our office to check it out. If you can't make it to the office, we'd still love for you to write about it! Below are some links with information about both the artist and Fueled Collective. We've recently had a photoshoot, so if you are interested I'd be happy to send some pictures your way.
