Jamie Moriarty is a painter and interactive sculptor who challenges the ways that technology influences society. Moriarty’s works draw upon the tension between idealistic texts such as Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto and apocalyptic prophecies as in Why the Future Doesn’t Need Us by Bill Joy. Through silicone, hair, paint, microprocessors, and various circuitry, she further integrates the two disciplines of art and technology in order to ask how we can negotiate the idealistic goals of the digital landscape and the often unintended ramifications of how it truly functions in society.
