Liminal Space is an exhibition of Generative Abstract Artwork presented as a series of video installations and prints. It is also a place, a threshold, a borderland where you can leave behind the mechanisms that control your everyday life to access a deeper awareness of your relationship with the natural world. The paradox is that this access point to nature is in part generated by Artificial Intelligence. You can see this contradiction reflected in the way hyper-real and abstract images work in tandem, each piece living on the verge of transforming into recognizable landscapes and sculptural forms. The frames are meant to function like oculi, honing your vision, allowing your brain to imagine three-dimensionality and sense the periphery just out of view. You can feel the expansiveness of landscapes stretching below you from a bird‘s-eye perspective and wide in front of you, your body earth-bound and grounded. Perhaps A.I. is less of a divergence from our natural selves than we may have otherwise expected.
Ultimately Liminal Space is a place for transformation and speaks to our understanding of the evolution of all living things. Organisms do not evolve until faced with enough discomfort or conflict, when they are otherwise given little or no choice. In our humanness we are perpetually faced with suffering and conflict. The space created here is an interruption to our habitual lives, to the pain and suffering of the world, and makes room for the evolution of consciousness.
