KATIE TORN
THE END OF FLUTTER VALLEY

July 3 through August 2, 2014
Reception: Thursday July 3 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm

THE WORK
Kate Torn integrates 3D computer graphics, photography, video, sculpture, and painting to build virtual structures out of the detritus of consumer culture. To create these structures, Torn navigates simulated 3D spaces that allow her to create from multiple angles, like a virtual sculptor.

Often making reference to the human figure, Torn’s structures offer a vision of a new type of natural substance that finds its origins in the virtual and melds organic and synthetic materials. In Torn’s fantastical worlds, body and object are interchangeable, and the formation of identity is bound to the plastic commodities that surround us from childhood.
