- How did you find the concept of your work for the Biennale?
I titled the work in the BiennialBest Boy Electric as a way of framing the encounter with the celestial machines and the complexities that arise with an infinite incarnation of technologies as our objects of attraction. Machines are very interested in watching and observing, but they are not discreet. Our encounters are more like confrontations and these dynamics keep getting exercised in my work. While with machines, we tend to realise how much the human sympathy for technology follows the formula of “like knows like.” We are capable of understanding them only through subjecting them to anthropomorphism or, in turn, we tend to technologise ourselves. There’s a lot of grey area I like to fill. This sense of kinship and sympathy, the sex appeal of the inorganic, is going to be present and playful.
