Aran Cravey Gallery: “AQUACULTURE"


From the Aran Cravey Gallery:

In this multimedia collaboration, Jed Berk and Oliver McIrwin stretch the boundaries of our perceptions of organic and synthetic, intertwining art and engineering to create an installation that challenges our perceived equilibrium with nature.

Through this intersection of art and technology, the sculptures, photographs and video work in the exhibition combine to create a dynamic, environmental prototype that explores our shared belonging and emotional connection to the living world. In Berk and McIrwin’s artistically engineered ecosystem, flora and fauna interact with each other and the viewer in a self-prescribed organic exchange that questions the nature of natural. The paradigm of our natural environment is pulled apart, creating a tenuous balance between opposing emotions. It is within these states of flux, suspended between memory and time, that our ability to routinely regulate the everyday with the chaotic is questioned, allowing for the potential of an alternative narrative.
