[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Ravi Rajakumar — Permutations

Artist Statement

This work is a series of three paintings on canvas, the culmination of several years of work investigating the convergence of biology and technology. These prints are the products of an attempt to re-sequence human biology, my biology, through the technological systems of printmaking and digital media. Their conception and construction have helped to effectuate a reconstruction of my body as a partially digitized organism immersed in a nutrient-rich environment.

  • Ravi Rajakumar¬†(Canada) is a twenty-five year old artist currently pursuing a MFA at Rutgers University (New Jersey). He has extensive personal experience with medical technology, imagery, and terminology, which has served as the context for his explorations into the nature of symbiotic relationships between humans and machines.
