Suspended Motion Series I: II , an 18" x 24" open edition archival digital print by Lisa Banks, is included in the juried group show Beyond Structure at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, CA, May 2-30, 2014. Beyond Structure aims to encourage artistic freedom or license to create works of art, which is counter to and outside the bounds of adhering to academic principles or curriculum. 111 Minna selected Banks’ work as the promotional image for the exhibition, featuring it on their website and flyer.
Works from Banks’ Suspended Motion Series depict her figure represented as simulated 3D wireframes, and reflect the theme of Beyond Structure by demonstrating new possibilities for self-representation through digital art production. Banks’ work explores her interest in human perception of bodily experience using technology. Her larger goal for the work is to encourage artists and individuals to experiment with technology and explore new ways of envisioning themselves and the world around them.
