[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Maryna Dykukha – BIG BRO IS FUCKED UP WATCHING YOU_

Artist Statement

Installation (2014)

This project works with concepts that lie at the intersection of art and politics. By pushing for a direct action, the work attempts to rethink relationships between the human and the system. The work presents an interactive eye that can follow up to five people. When more than that number of people congregate in the zone, the system glitches and fails.

Dykukha created this work In collaboration with the WRO Art Center . The artist is based in Kyiv, Ukraine.
