About

Daniel Everett works across a broad range of media, exploring the possibilities and limits of personal meaning in public spaces, both real and imagined. Much of his work focuses on the aesthetics and implications of the outdated and now-obsolete technology of his youth: videogames, computers, and the early Internet.

Everett repurposes these technologies, disrupting their functions and putting them to use in often funny and quite moving ways. Likewise, his photographic works capture uncanny moments within commonplace postmodern architecture—suggesting the presence of spirituality or even godliness in the most banal of places. Creating clean, coolly formal work, Everett projects profoundly personal questions onto the spaces, products, and leftovers of the public domain.
