First sketches for new bodies
Whatever new forms we are able to imagine and create, they hold a connection to our own forms–our own primitive, fleshy shapes. UNIDENTIFIED gathers and dismantles fragments of gestures in an attempt to evolve and become something else, to create new bodies with no defined shape or purpose. In a way, UNIDENTIFIED is a praise to all that doesn’t have any meaning intended, but still acquire meaning when crossing the boundary of human senses. The body itself doesn’t mean anything, still it is the one thing most plagued with meaning and language, viruses to which we have become kind hosts.
ORLA is the digital moniker of artist Theo Firmo. His work revolves around the possible representations of the body and its lack of language and narrative.
In turn, ORLA’s work investigates the presence and persistence of the physical body in digital universes.
