Which Switch

Which Switch

This piece, “Which Switch”, is possibly another subliminal precursor to the Resurfaced project. It’s one of my most popular compositions and I’ve had versions of it printed on paper, aluminum, and acrylic (plexiglass).

Life is about choices, turning on or off switches (or, leaving them alone), and then dealing with the results.

The backstory to the piece is that I was documenting a derelict, industrial factory in Malmö, Sweden, when quite serendipitously a bright turquoise wall appeared with a multitude of bakelite (lightweight plastic) switches fastened to it. As Robert Palmer so aptly phrased it back in the 1980s, the scene was Simply Irresistible.
