Brenna Murphy meditates on digital ruins
The works of artist Brenna Murphy are at once futuristic and archaic, exploiting technology to inform as well as to enable, resulting in pieces that carry a universal message. Derived primarily digitally, and often incorporating a number of elements, her art works proceed to coalesce and achieve a timeless meaning. Murphy sees technology as a prosthetic for human consciousness and at the same time as something that influences and reshapes consciousness: technology essentially serves as her tool for meditation and exploration.
