Certainly some truth to this statement. The concept of a cable in and of itself is not likely to go extinct at all. However, this work is archival oil on canvas, and has a long-view into the future which extends far beyond the types of cables used. These works will exist hundreds of years from now. Further, just because cables could be used, doesn't mean that they remain in use. The technophile in a household will always have at least a box or drawer full of cables to equipment that is gone and forgotten. Look at an RCA jack from 15 years ago, it may fit the same plug, but it's easy to place an approximate age with by simply looking at the styling and materials. Cables might get lucky in the future, and find a new use for a little while, but soon they will go back to rest whence they came. On a timeline scaled to the lifespan of fine art, spanning many human lifetimes, all these cables will be obsolete in the blink of an eye.
