"Where Do You Want To Go Today?"

“Where do you want to go today?” became the slogan for Microsoft from 1994 to 2002. This principle of limitless choice ushered in the virtual reality of the twenty-first century. The humanization of digital technology, combined with the proliferation of information, is changing our perception of who we are and how we live. The work in this exhibit is the culmination of a project by the artist to understand the embodied nature of this significant shift. Through a ritual process of self-imposed restrictions, involving the mediation of tape and observation of digital colour processing, the artist has simulated a reflexive condition referencing the past as well as the present and possible future. Colour acts as both data and energy, while the touch of the hand connects to our human core. The work asks the beholder to allow for meaning to become latent, latent in the sense of a time delay within the system, in turn, allowing for a holistic consideration of what it means to be human.
