Mitch Posada‘s conceptual bent exists outside of direct narrative frameworks and is more concerned with the experimental nature of contemporary virtual environments. He is interested in our ability to empathize with virtually augmented textures as sentient, impossible objects as functional, and avatars as extensions of our subconscious. Mitch is compelled to create 3d virtual environments as paraphysical lucid dreams held together by exotic physics and desires we only wish we had. His artworks never quite reach a utopian scale but they are intimate glimpses about spasmodic signifiers giving way to plurality of context and meaning.
Mitch is currently working on creating some virtual obstacle courses where digital screens, data and hardware are sensually and erotically inhaled (with synced audio) in order to continue the meta-virtual course. There’s so much fetishism around personal digital devices, image software, operating systems and the web that these videos will be an attempt to perpetuate our obsession to absurdity through demonstrating a sensual symbiotic relationship between technology and ourselves: a distinction that I hope continues to blur.
