[ISEA2012] Panel: Patricia Olynyk & Frank Bush – Our relationship to natural and altered environments

Panel Statement

Panel: Synaptic Scenarios for Ecological Environments

A technology mediated world is increasingly desensitized to physical sensation, my work calls upon viewers to expand their awareness of the worlds they inhabit, whether those worlds are their own bodies or the spaces they occupy. Through multi-media installations that that focus on modes of sensation, and offer magnified images of sense organs with macro-images of garden environments the hope is to heighten our sensate experience between ecology and us.
