Cursive Binary: This plastic on key will outlive us all.
Sasha Stiles proposes a language for transhuman communication, merging the human and the machine through a seamless “transbinary” font. Cursive Binary is shorthand for the desire to transcend simplistic, reductive systems in favour of infinite possibility, and reflects a deep urge to connect. The 0s and 1s written by Stiles create elegant and complex patterns that require the viewer’s intellect to decipher; the artist’s handwriting explores the possibility of engaging an intimate relationship with technology, where numbers and the logic of the binary code are mediated by human sensitivity.
Memento Minti is a group show curated by Filippo Lorenzin featuring works by Nicolas Sassoon, Sasha Stiles, Jisu Choe, Silvio Lorusso and Dancevatar, artists who have been exploring the thin line between self-promotion and survival strategy concerning the online presence of artists and creatives making and releasing digital art.
