Amos' World

Cécile B. Evans - Amos\' World
The catalogue of the Belgian-American artist's architectural and video installation, at the crossroads of different disciplines, conceived by Cécile B. Evans herself.
Also available in English edition.
In her work, Cécile B. Evans (born 1983, lives and works in Berlin and London) investigates the function of emotions in our networked society and the influence of digital technologies on human condition. Her mixed-media installations reflect the interconnection of digital and analogue ways of life as well as their interaction. Among her range of topics, the autonomy of digital images and data circulation in the internet, the relationship of user generated content and automated recording processes (bots), as well as the newest developments and technologies in the processes of artificial intelligence and the moving image are currently her recurring themes. Based on extensive research and supported by collaboratively developed programmes and visual simulations, she creates rendered agents and narrative spaces, which are, however, always transferred into a physical experience in the exhibition and thus presume concrete interactions between humans and machines.
Edited by Marianne Dobner and Cécile B. Evans.
