MY SOUL IS BUT AN ALGORITHM (SOFTWARE UPDATES FOR THE END OF THE WORLD)


  • Stockroom Gallery 355a Wellington Street Clifton Hill, VIC, 3068 Australia (map)

There is a force in play that is propelling humanity forward. It is both within us and also separate from us. Just as we are both nature and estranged from nature. Whatever the case we are living is the shift.

These works are an attempt to visualize what Jason considers our current state, People out of sync with nature and within a rapidly changing world brought about by our desire to push forth no matter what.

From afar the works appear fairly representational depicting both figgures and floral/fauna elements and it’s only on closer inspection does one begin to see just how much the motifs has shifted into a realm of abstraction, fragmentation and are of an unsettled state. All lines have been blurred and it becomes apparent that the reality that has been depicted is one that has been heavily synthesized. Much as the world around us continues to become.

we exist between two worlds one that we have harmed greatly and one that we desire to bring about, for right now we are in a state of afflux, towards doomsday or eutopia it’s too soon to tell.
