Forget the lyre or flute. "Pan," at least in Adam Reeder's version of the mythological figure, dances to the iPod.
Reeder, who recently graduated with a masters in sculpture from San Francisco's Academy of Art University, is also a big tech enthusiast. He has attempted to wed classical sculpture with modern themes.
"Technology has changed the context but not the nature of humans or art," says Reeder. "Classical sculpture is typically very serious and everyday people come in and they're kind of ready to be bored. Then, they see this and say 'Dude, this is great.' That is because this is going right from me to people who like technology. Instead of art buffs, I want it to be geek to geek. This is our world."
His work is on display through August 31 at the Academy of Art University's 79 Gallery in San Francisco.
