In my video work I demonstrate the peculiar circumstances of display screen integration throughout daily life. The environments in my videos are constructed in both digital and real space which are setup to reciprocate with one another. The viewer of the videos loops between both spaces seamlessly which are tethered together by an image or screen. This body of work is a response on how digital systems are perpetually usurping our viewing habits to all things in reality. Calculated and sardonic; these video tableaux function as fantastical scenarios that catalog and invent situations that influence contemporary perception.
Ideal location of my work to be displayed, on Mars:
My work often meditates on Mars - being one of the most well documented objects in our universe that we've yet had any human physical access to. Similar to the utility of a digital image, Mars is understood at a distance through the production of images.
Mitch Patrick's studio practice encompasses a range of digital media, 3d printing, and drawing processes. Much of these practices investigate the function / representation of pixels in digital images through the use of generative typography. His 3d printing practice rigorously investigates the bildpunkt, a German photographic term meaning "picture point," and explores its recent history (as a pixel) through current cosmological research programs. His looping and performance videos exhibit digitally constructed tableaux detailing the peculiar interactions between viewers, screens, and virtual spaces. He holds a BFA from the University of Montevallo (2007), and an MFA from Brooklyn College (2013). (b. 1985, McDonough, GA. Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.)
