I Watch a lot of Science Fiction
As our technological systems gain complexity, our natural and digital worlds are seemingly less distinct; merging via a kind of mutual mimicry. I watch a lot of Science Fiction explores ideas of technological utopias in a world where simultaneously nature is increasingly enhanced by technology, and technology is anthropomorphized. Channeling language and material specificity to create connections between technology and their biological origins, Alicia King’s new work plays upon the concept of ‘the future’ as a mythical entity that can never actuate.
