Species of Space

PRESENTED ON APR 22, 2016
IN EDINBURGH @ VOL 33

Robert Powell has long been interested in encyclopaedic and organisational forms. His practice explores representations of reality that are universal, yet constantly subverted as they are enmeshed in a web of cultural and personal memory, of national histories and myths, always with the covering cherub of art history looming above. This interest was also exemplified his recent solo exhibition in Quebec City entitled ‘A Universal History of Iniquity’, which the artist has described as ‘a universal history viewed through the prism of Borges’ Aleph relocated to a Stockbridge basement.’

Art With Other Species

BY EGG SYNTAX
@ VOL 9 ON OCT 09, 2015

"One of the themes that keeps drawing me back to this sorta work is that of technological augmentation. Some interspecies collaboration can begin to suggest to us what it might be like to be technologically augmented humans..."

In "Art with Other Species" from PechaKucha Night Asheville Vol. 9, Egg Syntax explores the artistic, scientific, and all-together fascinating intersection of an art crossbred with nature. He surveys examples, themes, and implications of interspecies art from the simplest notions of using another species as a medium, to that of collaboration with another species. Prepare to have your mind blown.
