in proximity to all those beautiful objects
exhibited as apart of Capsule Logics: 3 solo projects, alongside Alvin Luong and Miles Rufelds
Collision Gallery, January 20 - February 25, 2023
Overlooking a shopping plaza foodcourt, Claudia, an AI assistant embodied as a default 3D model, considers the hostility of capitalist affirmation. Her monologue is accompanied by a multi-channel projection on a mirrored terminal, reminiscent of both a surveillance booth and a mall directory map. Claudia ruminates on feminized labour and defered desire as she glitches between generic auto-responses and poetic speculation.
Responding to Collision Studio’s location in the PATH, in proximity to all those beautiful objects combines the aesthetic vernacular of the front-end of a shopping plaza and the back-end of a food court to create an interstitial space and contend with the visceral ramifications of metabolizing capitalist affects.
