The Epoché Project examines the impact of technology on a sense of interiority for both human subjects and the spaces we inhabit, and discusses the relationship between me, technology and the world.
Like most of my generation I grew up surrounded by technology. Technology was growing up at the same time as I was growing up. This project starts from a self that has been deeply invaded by technology, I spend most of my time engaged with various technologies and facing the different screens that are the portal to virtual spaces. In the Epoche project I use myself as the subject of this exploration with an awareness of current events and conditions affecting the state of society.
I use digital media to discover the effect of technology on my own individuality. Through a series of performances I examine the ways in which different bodily senses interact with technology- what is this space between body and organ? I use video to record time and space, to materialize the activity of the imagination, bringing people into the spiritual reality of time to consider ways in which a creative use of technology might produce a different future.
In addition to inhabiting me I wish to show how technology has changed how we understand the relationship between interior and exterior space. I intend to use humor to amplify or exaggerate a compromised sense of self, privacy and to build an emerging dialog between self and place.
This project relates to today's internet technology, digitization and artificial intelligence, with the rapid evolution of technology that pervasively permeates our lives. I ask these questions to open a space for a different future, to bring a natural breeze into the data center room.
