My series of three explores what is human, what is technology, and where the lines blur. Starting with acrylic on masonite, I used a laser cutter to etch outlines of human cells, circuits, and a warped combination of cells and circuits. I went back into each with 3 media: paint, ink, crayon. I couldn’t have created these works without modern technology, but they also needed my hand as the artist. Similarly, once we get past the initial “otherness” of new technology, we modify our lives to incorporate it. At the same time, we are the ones shaping what we choose to create. The relationship becomes at once fraught, constantly evolving, symbiotic. Furthermore, even though the content of the cell and circuit pieces is opposite—two dichotomous elements in the group of three—the colors and patterns are so similar that this distinction would be easy to miss. Just like how pacemakers, Siri, microchip implants, face recognition, have merged their way into our lives.
