Phillip Toledano A New Kind of Beauty
“When we re-make ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity? Perhaps we are creating a new kind of beauty. An amalgam of surgery, art and popular culture? And if so, are the results the vanguard of human induced evolution?” – Phillip Toledano
Robbie Cooper Alter Ego
This exhibition explores the concept of virtual reality. Individuals become involved so heavily in the basic social psychology of their virtual life, that reality can become distant.
One questions whether the virtual life encourages social interaction or isolation and what that may mean for our community. By recording the appearance of the real person alongside that of their avatar, Robert Cooper compares individuals with their avatar identity.
