Preview of Select Artworks:
Andrew Thomas Huang — Mutant Bagua (Pictured Above)
Mutant Bagua is a 3D sculptural reinterpretation of the Taoist Bagua (八卦) as a machine-spirit interface. By uploading ancient Taoist script into virtual form, the work serves as an ancestral portal to digital spirits that haunt the interface between Taoist structural code and digital data.

Sabrina Ratté — Floralia II

Floralia II by Sabrina Ratté. Image courtesy of the artist and Feral File. Floralia II is part of a series inspired by the writings of Donna J. Haraway, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Greg
Egan. The work plunges us into a speculative future where samples of then-extinct plant species are preserved and displayed in a virtual archive room. Floralia II is a simulation of ecosystems born from the fusion of technology and organic matter, where past and future coexist in the perpetual tension of the present.

Lawrence Lek — Temple Lily

Temple Lily by Lawrence Lek. Image courtesy of the artist and Feral File. As Lek describes his imagined specimen: "The rare Temple Lily requires music in order to grow, and higher frequencies cause the flower's characteristic interference pattern on its petals. Widely known for its therapeutic and healing qualities, multiple attempts have been made to clone the flower for pharmaceutical purposes. Despite these attempts, only several known specimens currently exist."

As for Fragments of a Hologram Rose (, "This exhibition borrows its name from Willliam Gibson's first published short story,' Fragments of a Hologram Rose' (1977). As the story notes, when a hologram is cut into pieces, even the smallest section still contains the whole of the image. In a similar way, plant cuttings and an edition of digital works can both hold these mirroring elements of origin and multiplicity."
