ALEXANDER SI IS A NEW YORK-BASED ARTIST WHO'S INTERESTED IN RECONTEXTUALIZING OUR SOCIAL RELATION MEDIATED BY IMAGES AND IMAGE-MAKING MECHANISMS THROUGH HIS KINETIC SCULPTURES.
STAGE, SET, THEATER, CINEMA, CAMERA, LIGHTS, MICROPHONE, THE INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA - WE HEAVILY EXERCISE THESE DEVICES TO THE POINT WHERE WE OVERLOOK THEIR COLD AND LIFELESS MATERIALITY, TREATING THEM AS PROSTHESES OF OUR VERY OWN FLESH AND BONE.
TAKING THE FORMAL LANGUAGE OF SUCH APPARATUSES AS BUILDING BLOCKS, SI MANUFACTURES A SETTING TO FRAME AN INTERACTION TO CALL UPON THE DYNAMICS BETWEEN THE ONE WHO IS WATCHING AND ONE WHO IS BEING WATCHED.
