Kelsey Brod: Works-In-Process
#PPGArtist Kelsey Brod
My residency at Power Plant gave me a space to feel the affects of the pandemic differently and to face grief over so much theft of life. I felt the space filling itself and me with a different sensitivity to making and perceiving. I began working with Covid-19 data, challenging myself to make counted data and its gaps feel more embodied. The in/ability to feel a relationship to large numbers, to feel and gather a sense of scale, is not just a question of processing the pandemic. It is also a fundamental question of socio-computational ontologies like digital networks. The presented works-in-process ask, how can data vibrate, particularly beyond one-to-one correlation? Can these vibrational margins of indeterminacy account for the unaccounted with and without counting?
