But Sawtell’s chilling assemblies aren’t imaginary: all of their components are the stuff of the real world – industrial softwares and hardwares from “The Contemporary Global Arcade”. It’s all out there (and in here) for the taking, in “The Province of Accumulation”. And what better way, Sawtell suggests, than to let the picture machines do the taking and the making – “All image capture, manipulation or slicing is made by the screen used as a lens.”
