Plug was created as the antithesis of the millennium bug phenomenon. He is an inspirational device to balance the Y2K catastrophe scenarios. The insect, technology and corporate themes, where naturally imbedded and became the main components in the development process of the character. He is pieced together by leftover materials from projects I have been working on during the last year. In a peculiar way composing him out of visual debris suits his complex persona, appearance and the environments he roams. His enemies are based on studies for a larger series called Transmigre, Cases of Corporate Reincarnation. 24 portraits of high executive title holders that return to life as insects. It’s a series that combines theories and research on social insects, traditional and contemporary corporate structures, job descriptions and reincarnation scriptures (more specifically the controversial teachings of Pythagoras on transmigration of souls). The studies for these portraits emerged as evil and intriguing as they need to be, in order to fit into the worlds of Plug. They personify symbols and weapons of their trades in a number of levels, some instantly visible and other hidden, avoiding the obvious and the expected.
