ucla - design media arts

nearrest neighbor 


the context cannot be ignored. in a radically altered reality, amidst the global transition towards existing evermore virtually and online, the 2o2o ucla dma mfa cohort presents their thesis exhibition, nearrest neighbor. the title refers at once to proximity, to the very recent and pronounced permutations of closeness, as well as its various applications as an algorithm (nearest neighbor search). works ranging from sculpture, projections, to immersive installations, incorporating various digital and mechanical techniques, have been re-imagined for an online exhibition

with shifting sociality as a through-line, ucla dma mfa cohort presents work that, when taken together, draws from increasingly more apparent tensions between embodied and mediated experience, synthetic personhood and its affect, digital and physical space, the animate and the non-animate. the exhibition negotiates movement through landscapes and networks, as human, non-human, and the in-between. recognition of nearness, the gravity of our intimacies, calculates proximity and distance in computation, as much as within a cohort, a socially distant society, an exhibition

zeynep abes, graham akins, berfin ataman, erin cooney, clara leivas, ben lerchin, blaine o’neill, miles peyton, hirad sab, dalena tran, and leming zhong. curated by erkki huhtamo, with the assistance of lauren lee mccarthy & chandler mcwilliams
