What interests me is the influence of virtual reality and augmented reality on our culture and everyday lives. There isn’t a filter anymore.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2014

Miri Chais makes her U.S. solo exhibition debut with “Re:Mind.” The exhibition opens at the USC Fisher Museum September 17, 2014, and runs through November 15, 2014. Her thought-provoking commentary focuses on the intersection of societal perceptions, the pervasive influence of technology, and augmented reality. Chais explains, “What interests me is the influence of virtual reality and augmented reality on our culture and everyday lives. There isn’t a filter anymore.”

The post-internet art intricately melds the perception of the past and the future together. Influenced by recent brain research breakthroughs regarding memory downloading and man/machine hybridization, Chais has created multimedia sculptures, video, sound installations, and digital work that take an intimate look at icons in pop-culture, memory downloading, augmented reality, and technology.

About MIRI CHAIS:

Chais is a multi-media artist. She moved from Israel to the U.S two years ago. Chais constructs her works based on images from symbols and visual expressions used in the fields of science, biology, and digital software and hardware, alongside an overt dialogue with pop culture. “The lines between what is real and imagined are elusive and blurred, as the virtual world grasps more of everybody's perception of their surrounding and of oneself,” she states.
