Aspect Ratio is pleased to present, Definitions 1, new work from Daniel Bennett.
Definitions 1, Daniel Bennett’s pilot investigation into the measurement of technologies with the body in a social setting. He seeks to map the invisible structures that are present beyond technology’s form and function. His corporeal body acting as a constant, his performance-as-research explores the ways that we are habituated within spaces of automation. The series seeks to incorporate a perceived naivety, a process of unlearning the language of use that permeates the everyday. By presenting the viewer with a litany of possible of interactions, Definitions 1 aims to question the “reality” of these super-modern technologies.
Daniel Bennett lives and works in Chicago. He received his BFA in Sculpture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He recently completed his Master’s of Fine Art in New Media from UIC. He has shown work in exhibitions at the Peoria Art Guild, OpenSource Gallery, Champaign, IL, Boneyard Arts Festival, Champaign, IL, Springer Cultural Center, Champaign, IL, and MDW Fair, Chicago.
