Shadow Bodies. Sarah Zucker, 2019.

Our light bodies distort as they emanate from our nervous systems out into the web. We grasp at these warped shadows in an attempt to understand the whole of the original being.

Part of Nervous Systems, a GIF + Video Art Series commissioned for the 2019 PrintScreen Festival through a grant from Asylum Arts.

Nervous Systems is a GIF + Video Art series by Sarah Zucker conveying an esoteric view of the Internet as the functional extension of the human nervous system. The series visualizes the progression from the primordial telecommunication of the natural world through mycelial networks, to the physical broadcast antenna of the human nervous system, into the Internet as the ethereal extension of humanity as it attempts to coalesce into a unified organism through its technology.

The series merges the Materialist and the Mystical in considering the unseen messaging systems within and without.
