Dissect The Insects

By entering this Digital / Virtual Kingdom of thoughts and perceptions, sensations and states, we are confronted with the Surreal and multiple systems. This carousel of webbed devices and elements invade, creating spaces within spaces and, in consequence, multiple layers of experience, memory and encounters. The artist aims to re-conceptualize the relations between the natural and the social, between the biological and the cultural. Where does the body end and ‘nonhuman nature’ begin? What ethical or political positions emerge from the movement across human and more-than-human flesh? Insects are the main source of research, mainly small animals/organisms because of how they are ‘programmed’ and their ‘more than human’ characteristics.
