This exhibition features work by Greenville artist, Jessica Swank. "Fragments of the Self" addresses the relationship between humans and digital technology from a personal perspective. Intersections of organic and synthetic materials within the constructed photographs function as a metaphor for the blurred boundaries between humans, machines, and nature. By utilizing various methods of self-extension, fragmentation, and recontextualization, I attempt to depict the merging of these entities. At this point, humans and machines no longer exist at opposite poles. They reside on a spectrum, with much overlap between them. Once their boundaries are given a physical form, it is possible to sever, mend, or remove them completely.
