Signs & Symbols
Mobile Tagging Art Installation
For this exhibit, I use the aesthetics of fractals and geometric abstraction to investigate the ubiquity of mobile technology in today’s life. I propose the interaction with the viewer through the decoding of signs and symbols in an installation that is, above all, a quest for beauty.
The proposal is based on the impact of 2D coding on life in the early 21st century: everything and everyone bearing contents and meanings in all possible combinations. As geometrical 2D codes have become part of almost every domain of life, fed by an incessant flow of data in real time to find information faster, they have also raised a generation of impatient consumers.
In Signs & Symbols, which aims to fill the gallery walls with an uninterrupted series of works with obvious visual continuity, a mesh is built to encourage interaction with the viewer via their mobile phones, and the technology of the binary codes, to find scattered data and information about today’s world and the most sought after URL’s in cyberspace. Signs & Symbols enhances the experience of what social media does and extends it to a new format, a world of geometric art.
Is technology bringing people together or drifting them apart? Is one que\stion explored by the installation to be shown at the MADI Museum. Where will these advances take us? Can geometric codes make internet irrelevant one day? Could you scan a code to manifest physical reality? This installation is about exploring, learning and finding the beauty inherent in geometry and fractal geometry. Exploring motivates me, I am drawn
