IMOCA 2010 Graduate Residency Award: Adam Gibney – website
With the growth of mass-production and the media, objects have developed a reliability on technology to define their function and value. My work aims to highlight the relationship between viewer, object and technology. There are still many issues and investigations I would like to try resolve and further. My work has been focused on technology’s effect on reality, for this reason I would like to experiment with alternative ways of disrupting the viewers surroundings without solely relying on the gallery space. These interruptions would link closely with the work I would produce for the gallery setting. I would also like to continue in creating scenarios and spaces in which I illustrate a world controlled by a defunct and untrustworthy technology. Over the course of the year I plan also to practice and further projection techniques which I have been experimenting with.
