About this work
The future is already here. Technology today enables us to create human cells printouts. Open source code is available to all of us on the web. Knowledge can provide tools to create alternative consciousness, memories and new identities. Purpose of this work is to examine Art as a daily practice. Is it nature? is it science? does art function as a prosthesis for the artist? is the studio a lab for self-preservation?
The work is an ensemble of evolutionary images printed out on Latex. The Colaj work itself contains modern images from magazines which were attached together with reproductions from the 14th century paintings. The final product merges synthetic and biologic elements, creating a delusional, repulsive, plastic and esthetic hybrid. The photographic material becomes a Simulacra which tries to redefine reality and question facts of art history.
