Parataxis is the result of speculating on the extent to which human bodies have adjusted to digital immersion. The interactive installation is an idiosyncratic exploration of mutual dependencies between human and algorithmic systems and includes text, images, sound and objects. These occupy the gallery as an imagined experience of life with and without the influence of digitally assisted time, organisation, navigation and memory. The audience is invited to enter, explore and become part of the work.
This exhibition is an outcome of research in the Sculpture workshop, ANU School of Art & Design and ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science and is supported by an Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship.
