Motsonian

My practice combines virtual and physical materials with textures from video games, web mapping and virtual reality to create installations about the intersection of the physical and virtual worlds. I project video onto physical structures in reference to what’s known in 3D digital environments as texture mapping – skins covering virtual objects to give them identity. Recent work uses the visual symbol of knitting, a tradition I draw from my Estonian culture, as a metaphor for a video game aim system or player’s view. Recent exhibitions include the Woon Foundation Exhibition at Baltic39, and I’ve got too much on my plate curated by LeftLeg Gallery at the Northern Charter, Newcastle, Quit While You’re Ahead curated by MILK collective, Feeling Safer: Bugging Out at Exchange Rates, New York, curated by Gallery North. I have also been part of performances with Plastique Fantastique at Manchester Contemporary; West Ward Works, Dundee; Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh, and Dilston Grove, London, and with Jawbone_Jawbone at Vane Gallery, Newcastle.
