Combining the language of ancient and folk symbolism with modern technology.

The works of American artist Brenna Murphy (born 1986) are graphical and three-dimensional sculptures and reliefs that combine the language of ancient and folk symbolism with modern technology. Her computer-generated works are being shown in an ongoing exhibit at Düsseldorf’s Kunstverein through September 29, 2013.

Murphy’s works incorporate constantly and rapidly improving digital technology, such as graphic and design software, and room for artistic expansion. Many of the pieces have only been available for viewing online. The exhibit combines the pieces with musical instruments, sound installations and individual recordings by the artist, enhancing the works by combining ancient and modern sound and symbol language.
