Art Gym Denver is thrilled to present Alarming by K. Vuletich in the Common Space Gallery with an opening reception February 28 from 5 – 8PM. Alarming by K. Vuletich questions the way apps and phone culture alter who we are.
K. Vuletich’s practice is a combination of thought-provoking concept and exploration of materials. Her new series, Alarming, continues on this practice, using mixed media collage and motion-activated audio technology to discuss the ways in which our phones, and the apps on them, alter and change who we are. When discussing this new piece, she stated “in a time where the line between fact and fiction has been blurred by the constant inundation of ads, notifications, and news, our identity in relationship to technology is rapidly changing.” Vuletich’s installation is made up of small panels with painting and collage, using the warning/hazard icon and mobile app logos. This, combined with corresponding images in the collages and thematic sounds, forces the participant to evaluate their own relationship with our technology. In the end, Vuletich gives us all the opportunity to ask, “could our interaction with technology be the next stage of human evolution or are we, as Kurt Vonnegut suggests, ‘serving as appendages, to machines’?”
The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 9AM – 6PM. It will be on display from February 28 through March 22, 2019.
