'Elaine Adams- Virtual Viscera

Virtual Viscera explores the ways in which today’s digital and online media shape individual identity and form a virtual connection with the individual’s brain and body. The interactive collage, designed to create an abstract self portrait of the artist, is comprised of the artist’s original images as well as found images and internet ephemera. The collage serves as a digital memory archive in which the virtual merges with the flesh. The exhibition of Virtual Viscera will feature a new audio piece which will allow the viewer to experience maximum sensory immersion.

Elaine Adams is fourth-year BFA candidate at the University of Texas. Her work revolves around abjection, death and rebirth, ideas of self, and takes inspiration from practical horror movie effects and science fiction.

Claire Lachow - Sorry about the mess but we live here

Deceptively cheerful and homey in affect with their typically rustic wood/twine construction and curlicue handwritten script, the passive-aggressive decorative signs that appear in many suburban American homes communicate the otherwise unspoken anxieties and resentments of their owner (usually/presumably a woman tasked with maintaining the domestic space)

Claire Lachow is an artist and writer whose work maneuvers between physical and digital environments, probing the materiality of digital objects and flatness in the material world. She is a founding member of the feminist sculpture collective MATERIAL GIRLS. Lachow has exhibited at Super Dutchess, New York, NY; Governors Island Art Fair, New York, NY; Partial Shade, Austin, TX; The Museum of Human Achievement, Austin, TX;, SPRING/BREAK Art Show, New York, NY; Alt Esc No Vacancy, Brooklyn, NY; Local Host Gallery, Minecraft IP 162.244.165.111:48849 (http://162.244.165.111:48849/) ; and Schema Projects, Brooklyn, NY. Her work has been published in Contango Journal, Foundations Magazine, and the Atlas Review. Lachow received her B.A. with honors from Oberlin College, and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
