FUƧION NY is an one day art event organized to present curatorial projects that explore what it means to live and express oneself as a full human being in a technologically advanced society. “Technology has not only changed our lives forever but also the relevancy of human endeavor,” says FUƧION NY Producer Savona Bailey-McClain. “All facets of our life have been affected and how we relate to one another. So, we will look at ways where we can re-integrate our humanity creatively that includes our desires, individual tastes and environment.”
Ina Archer, a contributing curator who organized many of the digital works that will be on view states, “The digital artists included in this show spotlight the challenges as well as opportunities that technology presents. These time-based art works remain fully human through the integration of hand (made) and hand (held) devices. Using various media old and new, these artists share deliberate and aesthetically-motivated evocations of lo-tech and artisanal methods that include single channel installation video, film, digital animation, performance and drawing.”
