On Our Radar | Morehshin Allahyari, Jacolby Satterwhite & Shana Moulton
Meet Morehshin Allahyari, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Shana Moulton. We were first introduced to these three by David Hannon, who we interviewed last month. In this new series, we celebrate a number of creatives who continue to push the boundaries within the space of art and technology. We’re beyond excited to share our very first installment!
MOREHSHIN ALLAHYARIMorehshin Allahyari’s work encompasses the political, social, and cultural contradictions we face on a daily basis. Using technology as a philosophical toolkit to reflect on objects, she has a poetic approach to documenting life struggles in the 21st century. Allahyari gained widespread attention after her 3D-printing sculptural reconstructions of ancient artifacts destroyed by ISIS –– the project is otherwise known as ‘Material Speculation: ISIS.’
JACOLBY WATTERWHITESatterwhite’s work is celebrated for fusing performance, animation, and personal ephemera. His pieces build on products that his schizophrenic mother would sketch. After racking these materials, he transcends them into a virtual world, incorporating collected family videos and records of the artist himself in movement.
SHANA MOULTONHailing from California, Shana Moulton uses a mix of videos and performances as a means to showcase he own fears and anxieties via an alter ego, otherwise known as Cynthia. Captivating us with unsettling humor, Cynthia goes on to explore our everyday world in the most surreal ways possible.
