Jake Moore employs computer animation, video and sound to consider the inadequacy of the human form in the face of our increasingly ubiquitous technological climate. Arising from the relationship he holds with his own ailing living body, previous practice envisions a newly synthesised digital body; a labour toward a machine-like perfection in form, surface and movement. As the natural rhythm of the body becomes lost within a mechanical haze, he explores the point in which this progression becomes polluted, distorting the body into something ‘Other’. Within recent research, digital world-building becomes a tool to construct speculative utopias — sites that transcend all restriction in which ideas of identity can be completely reframed.
