Starting Point

Over the summer there have been a few artists that have stuck in my mind from my second year final project, their work for me has served as a starting point for some of the ideas I want to bring forward into my 3rd year project.

Petra Cortright 

Mike Kelley 

Ryan Trecartin 

I will be spending more time looking into these artists work in a bit more depth as I progress, but as an initial superficial exploration into their work, I am really interested in the way that they deal with digital media, particularly how it occupies space. I am interested in their approach to internet art and the the relationship between digital and physical space and existence. Particularly Mike Kelley and Ryan Trecartins work also looks at the excessive and over the top nature of contemporary society, Trecartin particularly explores this in a very absurdist way.

I want to develop on these sorts of ideas in my work this year, ideas of occupying digital and physical space, the excessive yet mundane relationship we have with information, and perhaps an exploration into the vulnerability that comes with such open access to data – the ease at which the relationship between fact and fiction can be blurred.
