Interactive collage on aluminum with augmented reality (AR) layer, 2015 We are the astronaut; our space suits our devices, social media our sponsors. We are connected but separate, we seek transcendence, search the void, dependent on technology to lead us through the darkness. The Astronauts in this series practice mudras, expressing our never-ending attempts at connecting with something bigger than ourselves. We think the space suit protects us, yet the real accomplishment might be to lose it and touch the universe directly; despite the terror of suffocation. The viewer is invited to join the astronaut in a (head)space walk via their own technology. A free custom app for iPhone, iPad, Android devices reveals extra layers of content. eko Art 2015

There is no such thing as science fiction! Ko’s interactive art plays with Mediated Reality, Collective Consciousness, and Layered Experiences. Voyeurs are invited to engage via their smartphones or more traditionally (with their eyes); their experience altered by the amount of technology they’ve invited into their lives. STATEMENT “Future and ancient, natural and artificial, seductive and scary; our strange and modern lives are driven by juxtaposition and synthesis. To live in the ‘now’ is to live in a strange and surreal state of being. Reality has subsumed fantasy, life imitates art and vice-versa with a whole new level of intensity; together we ride this roller coaster feedback loop. The collective consciousness steadily strives towards deus ex machina; we are made connected but separate by our technology. There is no such thing as science fiction; all our stories, dreams, beliefs are are simultaneously true and entirely delusional.” ARTIST Erin Ko is a visual artist from the United States. She combines traditional art-making methods with new media tools to address our complicated love/hate relationship with technology. She is classically trained and has worked in video games and new media. She is the co-founder of Hutong Games. For more visit: erinkostudios.com
