What an awesome event to be a part of.
This is the first time in a long time I’ve had the chance to show a new piece of digital work in the thread of commentaries I’ve been working on the past few years.
To be a part of so many artists representing the Northwest and elsewhere, of non-dominant cultures, of South Africa (my home)… I am honored once again.
Many thanks to Roya Amirsoleymani, Bumbershoot, Out of Sight, PICA, and the Portland arts scene.
IRRELEVANT, 2023. Reese Bowes
A real-time generative artwork that takes images of autocrats and supposed dictators, pseudo-philosophers, evangelical and fundamentalist pastors… and dissolves them and their perceived and malformed powers.
To bestow a punishment for those individuals who will never see it.
