Beyond the Binary

Art History and Digital Art collide in this experimental Mixed Reality project by J. Rosenbaum. Inspired by classical art and ancient archaeological artifacts, Rosenbaum uses Augmented Reality and Machine Learning to present works that move beyond the digital binary, beyond the gender binary to show that we aren’t constrained by our programming.

Viewers will have the opportunity to explore these works at Testing Grounds over three days and watch the art and grounds come alive with traditional hung prints and 3D artworks that exist only within the digital plane.

The 3D works will be interactive and location aware. The markers are lightboxes with lasercut displays, the sculptures appear through the recursion app. This work will expand on the work I have explored with Recursion and build further into location based works.

Beyond the Binary will be Showing at Testing Grounds for Melbourne Fringe between September 20-22

About

I am consumed by the concept of a cultural zeitgeist, by ideas that are so large they have been shared amongst countless cultures over the ages. I am fascinated by what makes us human. My artwork centers around our religions and faith, our history and archaeology, our genders and emotions.

No live humans are used in my works. I use the latest in 3D technology to explore the concept of humanity, posing, shaping, lighting and texturing my lifeless figures until they take on a life of their own. I then collaborate with my computer using Machine Learning and Augmented Reality to bring art alive through your devices. I unite the possibilities of the computer with the unlimited possibilities of human ability to explore humanity by looking at what makes us people. our emotions, our beliefs, our fears and the ways we treat each other.

My works are unashamedly nude, but not erotic or titillating. They capture movement, gestures, emotion and encourage an empathic reaction in the viewer. The nude body is a beautiful, sensual, expressive entity and the human condition- the sum total of our beliefs and historical achievements is eternally fascinating. The beauty of the human form and the emotion evident in each gesture are endless sources of inspiration.
