Mary Franck’s installation and performance pieces embody the beautiful and unsettling potential of digital technology. Usually shrouded in innocuous applications, she exposes these technologies to be fantastic and bizarre extensions of human desire and power by embedding them in art pieces. Her works anthropomorphize the machine and explore the ways in which technology augments human experience.
Her recent work has been primarily in video, crafting luminous, dream-like environments populated by models of swarms and biological growth on the brink of consciousness: charting digital extensions of human imagination. Mary holds a BA in Studio Art: Conceptual and Information Art from San Francisco State University.
Mary will show work at the September 5, 2012 opening of the SFEMF exhibition at Million Fishes Gallery.
