HYBRIDS

Hybrids is an installation of systems which re-configures various human-machine metaphors as sculpture, software, poetry, and video. Flying CPU is a vacant hardware case, which has two servo fans attached as rotary arms, and three legs; Clipped Wings is a short, moving tableau of a mythical pilot with a Macintosh logicboard/mass storage chassis grafted onto his back; Bonware is a painting of a replicable computer software, or virus, which has an ameliorative effect for the system on which it is installed; and Cybernetic Jaguar is an avatar drawing, sculpted using computer-generated imagery (CGI) and then transposed onto aluminum with enamel and chalk.
