ACCIDENTAL WORLD : PARTY ISLAND | GINA S. ORLANDO | 18 FEBRUARY 2017 – 18 MARCH 2017
Gina Orlando is a curator, writer, and new media artist based in Dallas, TX. Alumni of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Gina’s work spans multidisciplinary art practices. Utilizing digital art making processes in conjunction with her classically derived painting skills, Orlando’s work ever questions the limitations of media in regard to technology. Gina’s work reflects on the limitless accessibility to information in the post-digital age, mainly focusing on the internet as her point of reference and source of content. Time- the past, present, and future- is also at the center of her work, touching largely upon its implications, ever fleeting nature and growing irrelevance in the age of the internet. Largely stemming from her interest in singularity, and the transcendence of our biological limitations via technology, Orlando communicates both her excitement, fears, and curiosity of a world racing towards automation.
