Garis & Hahn is pleased to present Enter the Machine, an exhibition of 9 new styrene printed works by New York-based artist and programmer, Eric Corriel.


Using custom software and displayed in synchronized pulsating light boxes, Corriel takes an ordinary computer hard drive and turns it inside-out, making its contents visible to the human eye. In his second solo exhibition with the gallery, Corriel raises questions about the digitization of contemporary society and creates a body of work that explores humanity’s dance with technology.

The Internet and the concomitant uploading of the most intimate parts of our personal lives is an accepted and near-requisite aspect of modern existence. Corriel posits that new and better tools are required to fully understand the implications of leading such digitally-oriented lives. This engenders the question: What other tools do we have to make sense of the storage of our personal data? If we could somehow meet our digital files face-to-face, what would they look like? Enter the Machine explores these ideas by giving a visual face to the unseen nature of our stored lives
