As a young computer sales consultant in the early 1990’s and watching the speed of the industry taking off but also the parallel speed of redundancy and obsolescence.

I understood the horse was one of the first methods to transfer people and consequently information quickly from one place to another. Today’s messenger is electronic and the circuit boards in this piece is bridging history and meaning with this running horse herd.
