This set of sculptures and participatory objects alternately extend and interrupt bodies, mangle perception and create a reality of delusional technologies. Fabricated out of PVC, acoustic foam, wood and paracord, interactive apparatus mediate experience through projection and sound. Humanoid sculptures add to a sense that minds and bodies have become strangers to one another, existing in different worlds yet occupying the same space. Playful, dark, engaging and alarming, this work teases the notion of mind-body separation, the anxiety of obsolescence and self as shadow.
