The Digital Wilds
Group show curated by Cosmic Rays Digital
March 3rd through April 2nd
Opening reception this Friday, March 3rd, 6-9pm
The Digital Wilds is a digital art exhibition curated by Cosmic Rays Digital, a programming initiative of the 5th Cosmic Rays Film Festival (www.cosmicraysfilmfest.com).
The artists selected for this exhibition observe human-made digital technology as it interacts with the natural world. The works include computerized bivalves, botanical fakery, species séances, and vegetal matrices. Through the twisting tendrils of digital code, these artists render nature as both wild and programmed, toggling between responsive and impervious states.
The show highlights critical engagement with the new media technologies that surround us– technologies that threaten to ensnare us at the same time they promise to set us free– while investigating digital forms of privacy, identity, and nature.
