Sculpture and installation in progress materializing notions of data in aims to characterize data, it's ubiquity, materiality, physicality, vibrancy, immediacy, while responding to academic literature on contemporary digital theory. In particular, Synergic references post-humanism (Haraway, Braidotti), anthropocentrism, vibrant matter (Bennett), epigenetic sedimentation (Stiegler, Plato), exteriorization (Leroi-Gourhan), trope of immateriality (Casemajor) and actor network theory (Latour). The research entails in-depth readings of these digital theorists.
This upcoming spring, Synergic will be displayed at UCLA CNSI in conjunction with ARTSCI for a solo show.
