Matthew Steele’s interests lie in methods of connection. Heavily motivated by infrastructure, Steele sees a certain poetry in the lengths we go to and to feel connected. He is interested in how our internal technologies are often reflected in the physical technologies that we produce.  There is desire in a highway. There is resilience in a dam. There is triumph in a bridge. These icons are steeped in intense labor.  They are manifestations of our grand intention; to transcend the greatest obstacles we know. It is Steele’s intent to personify or portray technologies of the self through depictions of these utilitarian endeavors.
