People spend a majority of their time online, so much that websites and virtual tools feel more like household goods than digital entities. For his latest solo exhibition, “New,” Yung Jake merged the Internet and the real world. The Los Angeles-based artist took websites and web pages, such as YouTube, VEVO, and pop-up ads, and turned them into tangible sculptures made from scrap metal. The show is a commentary on how the public aspect of the web has crossed over into our private lives.
