ᴁ: A Transmedia Biography of ᴁrin Xello

This exhibition/installation, to take place in the Media Archaeology Lab, tells the story of ᴁrin Xello, a tortured yet brilliant artist who struggles throughout her/his complicated life to create something meaningful. ᴁrin’s story is told through fragments of poems, sound, music, and visual art displayed on and around various media – computers, typewriters, hand-made journals – the date of each fragment corresponding with the dates of production of the media. The biography of ᴁrin is the story of the artists’ two actual lives fused into one character and storyline/timeline. The audience will explore the space, collecting bits of information, until a portrait of the artist emerges. ᴁ resists the common practice of self identity denial in digital media art while simultaneously engaging in the common practice of digital persona.
