It is always exciting to work with our friend and well-known Seattle artist, Dylan Neuwirth. This exhibition “NOT A HOLOGRAM” was featured in GlassBox Gallery in Pioneer Square from February 4, 2016 – February 26, 2016.

“My exhibitions have always been situated somewhere between what you can experience and what you have to infer. Installations based on ideas that essentially act like a series of projections. Illusions sliding down the surface into an uncanny valley where objects becomes images and images collapse back into the mirage they came from. But I’ve never really pulled it off.


How do you actually express a body of work that considers the ongoing effects of living in the Anthropocene, late-capitalist ecology, artificial life, and posthuman contemporary existence as they relate to the moral aesthetics of survival in a burgeoning Neo-feudalist society while maintaining a sense of spirit? The exhibition needed to be layered, messy, baroque, sprawling yet adhere to some kind of logic working together to create an experiential, game-like environment. Essentially, I wanted to extend the IRL installation into the digital sphere in a meaningful way to add crucial layers of value to it — to bring NOT A HOLOGRAM full circle with an aesthetically conceptual trajectory.”
