“Adam Gibney’s recent work investigates technology’s effect on our surroundings and reality. Through video, sound, projection and installation, he constructs scenarios in which technology validates or disrupts reality. Through installations that both rely on and question technology, his work highlights in a playful manner the dark undertones that exist in our technological landscape. With the growth of mass-production and the media, objects have developed a reliability on technology to define their function and value. Gibney’s work highlights the relationship between viewer, object and technology. Inherent in his new work is a need to correct technological mishaps. “Limbo Excavated” not only highlights the problems arising in a reality controlled and validated by technology but actively tries to offer solutions.”
