Post The Met
Australian artist Tega Brain is interested in re-imagining the systems, infrastructures, and networks that govern our technologically enhanced world. In her works she’s converted data into smells, searched for signs of climate change in images on Flickr, and constructed a hybrid eco-system that joins a coin-operated laundromat with a miniature wetland. This in addition to many other playful and throughout provoking pieces that ask questions like: how much could you get for an ancient artifact from the Metropolitan Museum if it were listed on craigslist?
This week on Art Uncovered Tega Brain talks about her work, her former life as an environmental engineer, and we discuss a piece she has on view at Flux Factory here in NYC as part of a show called Counterfeiting for Cash.
