Official statement about this series of work:
Disconnect: Self (series)
Our bodies are our signifiers of truth. Through our senses we are able to turn our intangible, chaotic world into color, sound, and substance, but what do these senses mean in today’s technological world? Within this series, I am looking to explore the relationship to the self and the barriers we face in today’s society when on this inward journey. Using a technological language, in this case binary, to compose fragmented information on sheets of plexiglass, begins this commentary on the disconnection between the self through the use of technology as well as language. When these binary pieces are combined, they create a slightly abstracted figure through the multiple layers of code, which becomes clearer the farther you are from the images. The separation between each layer of plexiglass gives these figures a sense of depth. Consequently, when you look at these images closer or from angles other than a frontal view, the figures become disjointed and skewed.
These concepts, in context with society today, discuss how these barriers and disconnections are created through the use of technology and our language, or lack there of. These barriers not only become deeply rooted within ourselves, but isolate us from each other.
