Kara Güt and Clare Gatto Artists in Residence
February 8 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Resident Artists Kara Güt and Clare Gatto, two image-based digital artists working collaboratively on hybrid installations inspired by fantasy role-play video game design, will give a public presentation on Thursday, February 8 at 4:30pm in Holmes Auditorium.
In Residence: February 5 – 18, 2024
The artists’ installations are based in the world of a fictitious fantasy of their own making, called “The Cloud of Unknowing.” Each installation serves as a “level” for the game, becoming a generated constellation of patterns and texture, using the image as its central building material. Using strategies of input/output, they construct spaces that collage the physical and digital, creating imperfect translations and impossible objects. Existing within this precarious duality, the works emerge as copies of copies, or artifacts extruded through digital space and back again. The duo attended Ohio State University and Cranbrook Academy of Art. They live and work in Detroit, MI and Cleveland, OH respectively. Each maintains an individual practice, are involved in the artist community of the Midwest, and exhibit nationally and internationally.
