Opening 18 September – 15 October 2012
As part of the International Symposium on Electronic Art, ISEA2012: Machine Wilderness
What are the consequences of reducing our experiences to pixels and bytes? Is there a loss that comes with each potential? Must we leave behind that physical world to participate in the virtual?
void object() represents a collection of work concerned with the disembodied nature of data. In a world of ubiquitous computing, information has been reduced to data, with little regard to its physical reality. void object() is an intentional return to physicality and experience, rendering the otherwise invisible into body and color, form and molecule.
This exhibition addresses what is lost and gained in these processes, and appeals to an audience interested not only in information systems but in materiality and multisensory experience. Presented during the time of the International Symposium on Electronic Art, this exhibition would actively engage in this broader conversation of technology and the natural world.
The work presented includes 3D printed objects and digital prints, screen-based works, mechanical, electronic, and magnetic sculptures. In each work, the artist has dealt with the transition of experience to data, or data back to experience. The work reveals new information about our social and physical environments, exposes the consequences of lost data, and reinvents new ways of experience landscapes and space. This body of work raises awareness about expectation of experience and loss of body in the age of the immaterial.
Featuring Lindsey French, Kimberly Harty, Sanghwa Hong, Matthew Jernigan, Sophie Kahn, MinSo Kim, Joseph Morris, Milad Mozari, Phil Peters, David Rueter, and Vincent Tiley.
