Melissa's Pick
ArtList_2

Anyone with a modem has at some point pondered the existential crisis that is our post internet meta-reality. For “digital natives,” the internet’s possibilities to fabricate false certainties and play with the plasticity of identity and space has at times both liberated and alienated us from what is understood as physically concrete. Artists have long investigated the space between perceived truths and abstraction.

“Items in Varied Readers” by Leo Castaneda explores the development of artificial intelligence and virtual reality by implementing a modern gamer’s vocabulary in his use of VR headsets. Considered an “interactive sculpture,” the headset programmed by Castaneda immerses its participants in a lucid dreamscape of collapsing archetypal architectural forms derived from well-known public spaces. Through movement of the viewer’s physical body, the synthetic landscape can be navigated and manipulated, as its design is tethered to the corporal experience. A series of “future paintings,” works based on his virtual practice, are also on view. With technology’s ever more conspicuous influence in the way we observe our world, artists such as Castaneda are peering through the looking glass in new and playful ways.
