As part of Syracuse’s city-wide, monthly exhibition,
Spark Contemporary Art Space & Katie Micak Proudly Present:
God, the Universe and Everything Else
November 19, 2009
“Katie Micak, from Toronto, Canada, shows her latest video installations in a three room show dealing with a the body’s relationship to technology, and the transcendental power of Television and the Internet.”
I am interested in the exploration, rearrangement, and derangement of cultural debris. Original and found footage are presented as melodic or aggressive visual compositions that show the personal effects of experiencing Television and the Internet.
My subject matter deals with the act of watching and exposes the individual landscape that we each create in our viewing habits: disconnected narratives, memories of pop culture, the manifestations of a new social sub-consciousness, and changes in expressing shared experience, transcendence and sexuality.
