OPENING on Friday May 3rd
Exhibition from May 4 to September 28, 2019
The exhibition ‘Liat Segal: Output’ is a showcase of machines’ products, created by Segal in recent years. Paintings and drawings have been previously exhibited by Segal as part of processes, who’s origins are data fed to machines, then manipulated, and finally, materialized in the physical world. Now, as machines’ products are at the center, the visitor faces questions regarding the identity of the creator and the essence of the creation.
Liat Segal, a contemporary media artist, fusing together art and technology. Liat deals with the questions of existence in the age of Big Data by materializing them. In her works she harnesses information, software, electronics and mechanics to build installations and machines that connect the physical world with virtual ones. Segal observes inconsistencies and dissonances that rise when personal lives meet technological evolving environments and questions issues such as intimacy vs. alienation, privacy vs. over-exposure, control, identity, memory and originality as they reflect in technology.
Liat graduated M.Sc. studies in Applied Arts & Sciences (Minerva Schools KGI, San Francisco, 2017), M.Sc. in Computer Science and Biology (Tel Aviv University, 2007) and the Interdisciplinary Program for fostering excellence (Tel Aviv University, 2005). She worked as a researcher at Microsoft Innovation Labs (2009) and taught at the Bezalel School of Arts and Design at the Hebrew University.
Segal’s recent works were exhibited at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt, National American Jewish History Museum Philadelphia, Hansen House Jerusalem, Print Screen Festival, Amsterdam Light Festival, Jerusalem International Light Festival and others.
