VISIBLE_DEVICES, 2023. Performance, 30:00 min

Artist Statement

Through exploring systems and their peripheral experiences, Fiel Guhit enlivens software objects to simulate and invert the ways in which innovation has distanced the human experience. His work often proposes new perspectives that reconfigure one’s orientation towards invisible structures. Relation to the dematerialized characteristics of technology is central within Guhit’s work as he uses it to guide and situate oneself within emerging non-physical worlds. Through developing experiential software, Guhit brings new animacies to human-computer interaction that break away from normalized patterns—exploring margins of “error” as margins of possibility.
