Kate Fahey, Artist in Residence 2018

Portfolio of previous work:

Artist Statement: With machine vision, technological acceleration and the increasing pace of life, time seems to flow ever faster, making our relationships to images and the land fluid and problematic. At the core of my practice lies a concern for the surface and skin of the image through which I attempt to channel affect and a more embodied type of visuality, positing the surface as a site of mediation, transfer and transformation. Through the haptic nature of the work, I examine humans’ relationship with the digital and seek to connect with and to slow down our experience of images, calling on lost lore and old forms of knowledge to negotiate technology and scientific advancement.
