Kate Geck – Apeiron

Site Number: 31
Site Location: Builders Arms, 211 Gertrude st

Artwork Title: Apeiron
Artist: Kate Geck

Apeiron is a cosmological construct from early Greek philosophy. It is understood as the boundless substratum that generates the material world, and to which the material world will inevitably decay back into. Like memory, apeiron is a space without edges, ebbing and flowing the real world out of and into itself endlessly. This artwork manifests a technological apeiron – a meditative video loop that tries to transpose the codes of hyper connection into a boundless abstract space. The post-internet, maximalist aesthetic speaks to the deluge of content that has destroyed the artists attention span; the minimalism of traditional relaxation spaces now making her bored and restless.

Kate Geck is an installation artist working with digital and sensory space. She is interested in the ways technology can affect sensory experience, and the differences between what she terms mediated and non-mediated immediacy. Her installations feature acrylic sculpture, kaleidoscopic projections and augmented, digitally printed substrates. Based in Melbourne, Australia she is a CCD artist at Artful Dodgers Studios and lectures in Illustration at Melbourne Polytechnic.

Exhibitions include Athens Digital Art Fest 2016, NARS NY, ISEA 2015 (Vancouver), International Centre for Contemporary Art (Singapore), San Francisco International Art Festival, Nextwave, NGV Studios, Dotonbori (Osaka) and L’Atelier Kunst (Berlin).
