This event has ended.

Dissociation and the fragmentation of reality through technology are the subjects of investigation in James Clar’s exhibition, The World Never Ends. Clar creates an immersive multimedia installation that embraces and opens wide the blurred boundaries of the tangible and the metaphysical. It explores the notions of reality, virtual-reality, and ponders if in our technologically intertwined world, a new form of reality is taking shape.

James Clar is an American artist of Filipino descent (b. 1979, Wisconsin, USA). He studied Film and Animation at New York University and received his Masters at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. His work explores the conceptual and narrative potential of light and technology. As an extension of the visual systems of film and television, he gravitates towards lights, LEDs, and technology systems, but often applied in a critical discourse these technologies have on our perception and reality.

Clar was an artist in residence at Eyebeam Atelier in New York, Fabrica in Italy, and the FedEx Institute of Technology/Lantana Projects in Memphis. His artwork has been included in the Chanel Mobile Art exhibition (Tokyo), The New Museum (New York), 21c Museum Hotel (Oklahoma City), Bouroson Contemporary (Istanbul), Para Museum (Istanbul), MACBA (Barcelona), The Somerset House (UK), and Museum on Seam (Jerusalem).
