Virtual Spirit – Alanna Rebbeck
(Saturday June 9th, 3pm)
The trajectory of technological development points towards the merging of tech objects and human bodies. While this might ostensibly be a materially-based phenomenon, Alanna Rebbeck believes in the ontological entanglement between the immaterial dimensions of humans and technology: the spiritual and virtual realms. Through her art, including virtual reality, kinetic installation, and digital drawing, she has been developing a concept that she calls the “Virtual Spirit,” which investigates a futuristic paradigm of spirituality.
