The Cyborgian Other

Cyborgian Other (2015) investigates how the remix and recomposition of information influences how we remix and recompose our self.  Using mylar, various sculptural elements, live-stream video, sound and light, I expose both the codependency we have as humans on our technological counterparts and the dichotomy between what is human, natural, and earthly and what is digital, data, and machine. I believe my generation is a condensed image of both imagination and material reality. Through the image-and-speech-laden Internet, our social media presence has created a tradition of reproducing and recomposing ourselves from the reflections of others. The relation between our human self and machine has been a border war. Drawing from Donna Haraway’s essay, “A Cyborg Manifesto,” I am interested in the human and machine coexistence.
