Synth

This exhibition at White Columns, a New York galley space, explored the dissolving boundaries between the synthetic and organic through the creation of immersive installations within a large scale inflatable structure. Each work in synth feels “active” and seemingly “alive” but in reality has been created synthetically through the use of computer technology. MESH collaborated with organizer Leo Villareal on the exhibition and designed environments for two of the rooms housing interactive, projected installations. Two “synth chairs” represented an inversion of a chaise lounge, which supports the player of a networked video game in a forward-leaning, active position, in contrast to the slouch familiar to sofa-based gamers.
