Fauxliage documents the proliferation of disguised cell phone towers in the American West. By attempting to conceal an unsightly yet essential technology of the modern world, our landscapes now contain a quirky mosaic of masquerading palms, evergreens, flagpoles, crosses, and cacti. Technology is modifying our environment with idiosyncratic results. The often-whimsical tower disguises belie the equipment’s covert ability to collect valuable personal data.
Annette LeMay Burke is an award-winning photographic artist and Northern California native who lives in the heart of Silicon Valley. She is a longtime observer of the evolution of the Western landscape. Her work has been exhibited throughout the US and internationally.
Ann M. Jastrab is currently the Executive Director at the Center for Photographic Art (CPA) in Carmel, California.
