The Relationship Between Technology and People- Bryson Berry (IB-SL)

curated by:

The theme that I followed throughout my art-making process evolved over this course. Initially, it was just technology. It later changed to the human connection to technology. Now it is the relationship between technology and people. I came to this final theme because I realized that the dynamic between people and technology has not only evolved in the artistic world but also continues to evolve in everyday life. I wanted to show how people were related to technology in a literal sense, through physical connections. However, I also intended to show our connection through a metaphorical sense, questioning how it has been used and how it continues to transform our lives.

My exhibition contains works that have a personal connection to me and my life, as well as works generally aimed at humanity. Mechanical Heart was a digital work inspired by my grandfather’s heart surgery and subsequent heart replacement. My piece CD-Drive In Theater takes a far less personal approach, instead opting to question the general direction of the world’s growth with technology. Various artists inspired my works, including Jason Mecier who was my guide for helping me create “junk art” or Leon Reid IV and Nicolas Gentry who allowed me to further develop my expressive subject matter.

Although I used various mediums to create my works, my primary medium was digital. Digital mediums, either through Photoshop or Illustrator, allowed me the most flexibility and freedom to experiment with unrealistic ideas or those that were surreal or fictional in nature. I did vary the mediums by creating physical works of art. The physical pieces required mediums that would allow a more literal message to be directly supported by the media used. All the pieces together challenge the viewer to question the role of technology in their lives and in the lives of all humans.

I intended to display all the work in a manner that would allow any one of the pieces to be viewed at any time. I wanted the viewer to be surrounded by the works to give them the feeling of being in a single body. It was meant to be seen as all connected rather than one piece at a time.
