Name: Tyler Bohm
Statement: The digital technologies that increasingly shape our daily lives represent for me an intriguing platform for speculation. They evoke an array of hypothetical futures drawn from both the dystopian and utopian ends of science fiction. A unifying theme in my work has been the attempt to re-imagine this evolving technological landscape through a futuristic visual vocabulary. My work serves as a form of creative future studies, a speculation about the imminent that draws on science fiction narratives and past eras' visions of the future. It explores issues such as technophilia and technophobia, how we negotiate our relationships with emerging artificial intelligences, and how we integrate technological change into an evolving sense of normalcy. These thematic interests dovetail with my process. I am interested in the role and potential of newer design methodologies, and have adopted tools such as graphics software and a laser cutter to translate digital designs into physical objects which I paint and assemble by hand.
