Molly Morin: Information DensityCurrent
Projects Gallery: OCT 26, 2018–JAN 12, 2019
Opening Reception: OCT 26, 2018
Information Density draws upon Morin’s experience as a competitive weightlifter and coach. It presents weightlifting movements, equipment, and competition results through felt sculpture, data visualization, performative drawing, and digital fabrication. While maintaining fuzzy borders between information, mark-making, visualization and metaphor, this project addresses the sport of weightlifting as a practice in which fleshy, complicated, physical bodies are intimately connected to data sets and analysis. The work is both a celebration of powerful bodies a reflection on the ways in which we collect and represent the rapidly increasing volume of personal information that technology enables.
