Outdated features new works by Hailey Lowe Fennell and Bethany Collins, which make use of outdated forms of technology and media to reflect the modern world. Whether typewriter salt-licks or film stills, dictionary erasures or chalkboard drawings, both artists focus on the boundaries we create internally and externally through these outdated forms of technology. 

Hailey Lowe Fennell is a multi-media artist focusing on the tension between urbanism and nature, technology and nature, our bodies and the land we live on. She is especially interested in how landscape is portrayed in her film stills and video work - which is often the only element we see of her performative work in nature. Fennell's Machines series questions how technology, nature and modern human nature can coexist.

Bethany Collins is a multi-media artist, originally from Montgomery, AL. Collins’ language-based work highlights the inability of language to fully capture notions of modern racial identity. Rather, text is hidden, revealed, allowed and humored, but rarely settled. Throughout her work, Collins remains interested in the unnerving possibility of multiple meanings, dual perceptions, and limitlessness in the seemingly binary.
