Technologically Guided Meditation (Sermon Wall Part 2)

Uncategorized

Robin Hungerford utilizes video and performance as a means to explore narratives of the human condition, more specifically, ideas and predictions pertaining to ‘humanity’ and ‘progress’. In Sermon Wall Part 2 the evangelical rhetoric of techno-enthusiasts, with theories of transcending the body, combine with an attitude of misanthropic self-loathing to create a visualization of a future period in which we have, for better or worse, plunged deeper down the rabbit hole of our own devising.

The artist sees his inventive exposition functioning as a kind of sci-fi hypothetical futurology, a snap shot of the collective consciousness in the Internet age as well as a portrait of all that which is strange, beautiful and terrifying in relation to our technologically mediated present.
