Title of video: Liminal Senses, 2018, 5:00
Synopsis: Liminal Senses explores the intersection of human and machine bodies, the ways in which machines have changed our physical existences, and the role that technology plays in mediating human connections. The visual material is comprised of fragmented body parts, nature footage, and close-ups of a robot built by the artist. The sounds in the work were collected from field recordings of wind and electronic sounds discovered through disassembling electronic devices and hacking their circuit boards.
