"Concern about social and cultural change is also stongly present in work that is often emphasized by wit and visual puns. Such humour as seen in the art of Micah Lexier, Daniel Dugas and Juan Gomez-Perales, is ironic; it predicates a fear that technology is "advancing" in ways that are literally and socially retrogressive . All three demand participation from the viewer to activate the work - a direct manipulation and physical interaction."
