The theme of copy prompts a generous reflection on related terms: reproduction, refrain, doppelgangers, twins, and general meditations on homology/homogeny as informative and instructive muses. This contemplation led me to consider copy as it pertains to language, both the aesthetic and descriptive potentials of this connection. In this era of editorial skepticism and alternative truths, I take interest in language as a mechanism of creating dual-meanings. Parting Words is a book of eighty-six selected homonyms - words that sound the same but are spelled differently and mean different things - each page featuring a single word, leading the viewer/participant to conjure the double definitions of these words, or copies, in their own minds. By printing antiquated words like "quean," (the counterpart to queen) meaning "worthless woman" alongside contemporary terms like "altar" and "alter," this work prompts consideration of how language encases ingrained cultural beliefs and historical hierarchies of social value. I intend for this work to act as a provocation and performance, emphasizing the power of language as an agent of manipulation and parallel portrayals; it aims to describe this trend of “alt-truth” as a natural consequence of the malleable, manmade quality of language, describing it as an inherently duplicitous form.

Jerónimo Reyes-Retana
Island of Conscious Power in an Ocean of Unconscious Cooperation
2020
Mixed Media Installation (speakers, speaker mounts, trampolines, amplifiers 40w, computer server rack: eight-track audio interfaces, Max MSP)
3 x 3 x 2 m | 10 x 10 x 7 ft

Jerónimo Reyes-Retana is a graduate student in the Department of Art. 

Islands of Conscious Power in an Ocean of Unconscious Cooperation—an ephemeral installation fully acquired at Amazon and with a life-span subjected to its 30-day return policy, examines the possibility of using back a platform regulated by algorithms programmed to micro-targeting content to individual users based on previous search-and-click history. Furthermore, a 15-track interface breaks down sound into milli-seconds to reproduce a fragmented representation of the Amazon’s rainforest that, when listening closely, is not more than noise. However, when heard from afar, the sound signal coming out from each output complements with the others to obtain intelligibility. A structure created by the intersection of two trampolines creates a micro-environment where moving around space becomes an eerie experience suggesting the hypothetical existence of the Amazon only as a fictitious representation mediated by algorithms. The installation brings to the front a dyadic relationship of expansion and contraction. On the one hand, Amazon continues to expand its domain to a variety of fields, including cloud hosting, artificial intelligence, and outer-space exploration. While on the other, the Amazon contracts as a consequence of an economy of extractive capitalism.

Trypophobia is an aversion to the sight of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes or bumps. It is not officially recognized as a mental disorder, but may be diagnosed as a specific phobia if excessive fear and distress occur. People may express only disgust to trypophobic imagery. The scientific understanding of trypophobia is limited.

“In the wake of destruction lies the hope of utopia. In this work I was exploring the concept of something beautiful coming as a result of disaster. By juxtaposing a broken battlefield with a beautiful garden, presented through an immersive virtual environment, I hope to invoke reverent consideration and a sense of awe within the viewer.”

This project is about the body as a tool. A shoulder yoke is arguably an artifact placed in our current lives. A tool that has transmuted uses, a tool that functions as a placeholder for romantic memories. My great grandma moved to the United States as a teenager from a little farm outside of Oslo Norway. She used a shoulder yoke in her youth to carry buckets of milk or water. Objects like the shoulder yoke are tools that act as an extension of the body, sometimes even altering the body through repeated use. I was thinking about the idea of an ancestral body as I made this object. Working with milk plastic was another way for me to relate to and think about these themes. It is a material that appears bone or stone like. Milk is a tool for sustenance, and itself a product of a(n) (animals) body. (However the most exciting part about this material for me is that it is eco friendly).
