In Search [indistinct conversations]

Claire Tianyi Sun is a Chinese interdisciplinary visual artist from the United Kingdom and is currently living and working in Los Angeles. In Search [indistinct conversations] is an experience of paintings, digital images, and installations that ruptures language, syntax, and perspective to investigate and recreate the process of interpretation. Sun interweaves painting, textiles, calligraphy, embroidery, and written text with the weightless waves and abstract codes of digital technology to explore the connotations embedded within these elements. Collectively, they form a psychological landscape where we re-route meaning and navigate between fragments that exert opposite gravitational pulls.

Portkey: Live Styles of the Live and Streaming

In the realities of live streaming, it’s hard to distinguish the differences between script and improvisation. The experiential elements of your online presence, your face and body, your in-and-off camera environments - these are all being rethought and remade according to a new brief that addresses not just one, or dozens, of users, but audiences of thousands or millions. We’re easily locked into the typical expectations of live streaming such as using forward facing or multi camera perspectives. Portkey explores the limits of planned sets and broadcasting methods by keying out everyday objects and transforming them into whimsical alternatives.

Chester is not Here

Chester is here. 

He is an interdisciplinary artist who uses performance, photography, video, and installation to work through the complexities and incommensurabilities of (in)visibility, race, labor, and commodification. The futility of attempting to reconcile and or resolve these concepts, constructions, and abstractions is accepted at the outset and incorporated into the work, often through the use of humor, absurdity, and repetition. Due to the care required to engage with these highly charged and sensitive realities he has chosen to highlight and center his body and subjectivity with hyperspecificity throughout his work, despite his awareness that he will inevitably make or create generalizations. He uses the word body loosely, frequently working across and between physical performances “in real life” and highly intentional performances and interventions online, with his virtual self and selves.

Pop

Here are two balloons. I pushed a black one into a transparent one and injected water. What reaction will it show? The black balloon seemed like a lump of human desire, and the clear balloon looked like earth tolerating all of those. I shivered in fear holding this heavy, growing balloon. When they reach the limit, the clear one exploded, and the black one couldn’t resist its weight and fell and exploded. All I had left was fear and wet clothes. It implies the current situation of that COVID-19 pandemic as a human disaster which is killing ourselves.

Digital Serendipity

Riffing on the idea of a message in a bottle, this speculative system sends user serendipitous messages based on the “natural forces of cyberspace”: internet speed and political weather of online media. A message will travel to recipients with internet access and shaped by the weather along the way. Taking inspiration from nature, Viola approached the “echo chamber” effect poetically and proposed an alternative interaction between internet users who are isolated by predictive algorithms and search preferences. Viola is a creative technologist based in LA.

Island of Doubt

Documentation of an installation. Island of Doubt investigates relationships between mechanical objects that have physical qualities within a closed system, and the system’s relationship to the architecture and the audience. It is a meditation on how two very separate entities like the visitor and the artpiece can affect each other physically but not be aware of the unseen consequences that may follow the physical interaction.

The Waves

The Waves is about the possibility of forging a new relationship to a vital portion of the natural world, the ocean waves. That new relationship can occur in a space of contemplation about the "forever" aspect of the waves: over eons of time and amidst all human history and drama, they have never once stopped rolling onto shore. That includes these waves, recorded here in Southern California. When such an understanding occurs, both a kind of humbling and comfort can take place within human subjectivity, resulting in a recalibrated relationship to the natural world as something we humans exist in, and not apart from.  Erin Cooney is a visual artist, educator, and activist. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she has lived in Los Angeles since 2000.
