Isla Hansen – 5pm, April 24th, Carpenter Center

Posted on April 1, 2018 by School of Art

escaladesideandmonitorwebIsla Hansen‘s work reenacts forms of popular media, play, and systems of production, recreating ways in which bodies connect to technologies in the world around us. Her work sets in motion new and sometimes crude means of image-making in order to break down or convolute processes of technological mediation. Recently, Isla has focused on the way in which camera and robotic systems in the gaming, medicine, food, and sports industries have developed by tracking and positioning the human body as analogue. Evoking the association of image to desire, idolatry, ideology, and learning, these absurd systems reinterpret and complicate the relationship between the human body and technological progress.
