Long Gao — Limitless, Boundless, and Forever Beautiful
Opening Reception: Friday February 9 at 7:00 pm
It is though digital technology that we are able to capture and relive moments in ways that are increasingly vivid and close to reality. This agency changes our expectations towards what we can and cannot immediately attain. Romance is perhaps one of the most fleeting experiences that we are unable to relive once gone. We are left with digital imprints in the form of photos and videos that do not do justice to that which is real.
Limitless, boundless, and forever beautiful is a response to the ephemerality of love within the context of digital technology. As an act of reconciliation, the artist seeks to recreate feelings of infatuation, intimacy and romance. An innocent logic based on intuition is taken when approaching the subject. Rose petals, a classic symbol for love, are paired with digital imagery in order to explore the ever increasing integration of digital and physical experiences.
