ReTech is an art project run by the artist Asher. All of Asher’s work is accomplished by reclaiming disused, antiquated technology to be repurposed as art. The motto “Ars Ex Machina” is printed on some of his works, and runs rampant through his various social media and web pages. It also describes his work wonderfully. The very fact that the quote is latin, meaning art from the machine, probes at the idea of old technology. In practice, however, it is quite literal. His machines manifest as art calls forth a nightmare of a realized dystopia in the spirit of 1984.
ReTech is the vision of one man lost in the noise of the post industrial collapse. In 2052 Asher began transmitting back to the early part of the 21st century.
