Daniel Lopera, still from In Utero, Being Life, Doing Death, Next State? (2014)

NATURALLY SYNTHETIC
March 5–27, 2015
Made in NY Media Center by IFP
30 John Street | Brooklyn, New York, 11201

Images (L to R): Dana Miller, A Theory of All Things #2455 (2012); Kimberly Witham, Still Life with Watermelon and Chipmunk (2011); Caryn Cline, still from Left Side, Riverside (2011); Erica Magrey, screenshot from Face, Porthole, Window, Glovebox (2013)

With the ability to extend sight, memory, and interaction, our media tools foster a naturally synthetic hub through which nature and experience are visualized, made accessible, and become normalized, achieving something that feels naturally synthetic.

The artists selected for this group show make subtle use of their chosen medium to capture and construct synthetic environments that serve to analyze or question things like humanity, what it means to be alive, and under what conditions can fantasy and reality become enmeshed.
