Abstract:

Fragmented Flora: Digital Embodiments of Being in Time and Space consists of the curation of a digital environment that utilizes the affective qualities of physical space; featuring an animated piece Still life with fallen fruit (2019) by Elisabeth Belliveau, the video We Weight on the Land (Winter) (2019) by Eve Tagny, interactive poem Fin (2018) and sound piece xi xi 息息 (2019) by Xuan Ye, and a live stream floral installation Flowers in Time and Space (2021) by Hayley O’Byrne. This work problematizes the ways in which humans interact with and act upon matter by conceptualizing the ways in which permanence and materialism are discussed and valued, as they intersect with the digital. The theoretical grounds of the project focus on the concepts materiality (as it relates to how matter moves through, exists, and transforms in space); temporality (as it relates to decay); and individuality (as it relates to senses and sensory triggers). The curatorial methodology engages the challenge of evoking the tangible and affect of qualities of physical experiences through an online exhibition.
