if…else is a screen-based, generative art installation that combines computer programming and video played on loop. Using cells that have been programmed with human characteristics the piece explores potential factors that impact humans when interacting with others. A 60” LCD monitor acts as the display for the piece to play through a computer which is hidden beneath the monitor.
The piece is rooted in the idea that in order to transform society’s current structures we must look introspectively and evaluate the ways we function.
Within the context of movements that are working to shift from rape culture to consent culture if…else aims to provide some insight into the work ahead by delving into the ways our environment and experiences impact the ways we move through our daily lives.
