Augmented Reality Installation by Tamiko Thiel and /p, 2018
Commissioned by the Whitney Museum of American Art New York as part of the exhibition:
"Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art, 1965–2018"
September 28, 2018 – April 14, 2019
The 6th floor terrace of the Whitney Museum has become covered with strange growths. Plastic refuse is growing into coral-like structures that thrive and wither depending on their exposure to the mediated human gaze. Is this our future, as plastic waste becomes more numerous than the fish in the sea?
Exhibition organized by Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of Digital Art, and Carol Mancusi-Ungaro, Melva Bucksbaum Associate Director for Conservation and Research, and Clémence White, curatorial assistant.
