Kate Keeling

I am a post-media artist. This is a made up term that reflects art making in an image saturated, synthetic culture. Media automatically associates art with physicality. Post-media is either nonphysical, such as the case with digital information, or it is the concept that is what's significant, rather than the substance or aesthetics. I tend toward digital art because it mirrors my place in history at the dawn of the information age. I believe that computer aided art and design is the future, as it is largely unexplored and completely infinite. That is the space where I like to create, the vast empty infinity of a 3D world, coupled with the dimension of time, anything is simulate-able. My work tends to be very theoretical, I walk the line of a physical and digital existence. I believe this will uncover something deep and meaningful about our society and reality, as we now exist simultaneously online and ‘in real life’. The way I create takes many different forms as I believe art is an exploration of self. As I evolve and synthesize new ideas, so too does my art and art making process. As the rapid development of technology progresses, new ways of art making are revealed, along with new challenges that need to be addressed.
