"ECOTOMES (transitions between ecosystems), a quiet room in a sea of interactivity.  Photography’s invention caused a shout: “from this day painting is dead”.  New media is evolving media; from stones and pencils to paintbrushes and presses and onward to virtual reality, artists-cyborgs use available technology to make their mark.  Every iPhone image relies upon millions of lines of code; every image we make (and see) involves millions of neurons.  Cameras and computers are prostheses for the artist, in a good way: not to replace but to augment what it means to be human.  Photography has not depicted what is “real” since it’s inception; that train left long ago.  But it retains its evocative nature to simulate the real (a construct of our brains processing visual intake) when contrasted with digital marks.  Here we air the ongoing dialog between our organic selves and our digital allies and influences." - Jonathan Morse
