STATEMENT

Chelsea van Zyl’s work explores temporality and communication between digital and non-digital modes of being. With a variety of process, van Zyl’s work is centered around touch and repetition.  Considering sensory presence as an intimate communications tool and a confirmation of reality through awareness of the body, van Zyl questions the isolated nature of modern socialization through devices, portals or screens and, how reality is distorted in a realm of virtual representations and face value.
