VIEW IN MY ROOM
Human_Construct is both research project and exhibition, delving into notions of identity. The works invite the viewer to take a step back and reflect on our identity as a social species, both in tangible human form and as a construction of ephemeral data. We live in an era that is data-hungry; where interactions between individuals are monitored and numerically quantified. These interactions are ultimately reduced to a transfer of code between machines, with relationships built on data and customisable beyond the realm of reality. In Human_Construct Cali (re)creates an experience where our current existence faces questionable truths, within a space littered with data aggregated through our parallel, virtual existence(s). By adopting a techno-utopian premise – one that suggests advances in science and technology might be a means to the understanding of social differences – the work returns our gaze with futuristic perspectives. This vision presents the body as no longer being a vessel for the soul, but rather a structure of tightly compiled systems. This is the introduction of the body as an engine; a sum of parts each discernible and dissectible.

Kane Cali has come to know himself as an experimentalist and artist. With no defined path except for an acute fascination with the malleability of data, he plays with data as if it were pigment in paint. This, a dilutable point of origin from which one can manipulate endlessly, be it in the form of print, glass, stone, marble, porcelain or any other tangle translation. Having completing an MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art, he has since exhibited internationally, namely, Milan, London and Shanghai and is currently based in Malta, in which he has set up KaneCali Studio. The space has been set up to allow for facilities catering for cast glass works and mixed media, and aims to merge the use of cutting edge technologies with that of the traditional.
