“Now I feel we’ve entered a strange new sensory realm; the vivid and mortal sensations created by the convincing visual surface texture of HD, the warm regard you feel towards your stamped metal devices, or the aboriginal shudder you get watching ASMR videos on YouTube. Paradoxically cold autistic cyberspace takes us back to an appreciation of sensuality.”
Excerpt from “Techno-animism, Lauren Cornell interviews four artists – John Kelsey, Katja Novitskova, Jacolby Satterwhite and Mark Leckey – about their perception or preoccupation with our relationship with the non-human world”, Mousse Magazine.
