PRESS RELEASE: "Human Factors," a solo exhibition by BOLT Resident Kim Harty, investigates the amalgamation of movements that an artist applies to object making. Using motion capture technology, chronophotography, and projection, Harty creates pieces that record and embody the artist’s process. Linear interpretations of motion, serial photographs, live feed projection, and glass sculptures look at the tension between personal expression and efficiency in the studio. In industrial settings, “human factors” are analyzed and optimized to make production ever efficient. How does this efficiency imperative function within the artist’s studio, and what are the human factors governing the artist’s production of objects? Harty answers this query through an interdisciplinary exploration of the relationship between movement and making.
Please join me for the "Human Factors" opening reception May 30th from 6-9pm at the Chicago Aritsts Coalition. The show will run through June 17th.
