Exposing foundational structures of nature and society, from the monumental to the immaterial, the works assembled in Disruptive Generation question the role of technology in constructing and mediating these realities as well as its capacity to undermine or transcend them. Each of these projects highlights the relationship between archetype and prototype, disrupting the cultural and computational systems that dictate our contemporary experiences in order to render space for alternative futures.
Disruptive Generation showcases work by recent graduates of the Art and Technology Studies department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), including Ziv Ze’ev Cohen, GREYMAR (Igraine Grey + Jonatan Martinez), Changyeob (C.Y.) Ok, Santiago X, and Li Yao.
