I like to take existential adventures through the forest, and if I could (which maybe one day I just might) I would tell Sol Lewitt that I think that art is the machine that makes the idea,
rather than the other way around.
My practice is an enquiry into the evolution of self and society and I am interested in Ontology, Post-Humanism and how art, technology and nature intertwine.
My interest in technology was born during my practice as a VJ (experimenting with sound and technology to create video images in real time), and I've continued to investigate the possibilities of the digital combined now with more material mediums (painting, assemblage, installations).
The focus of my research is the creative relationship between human and non-human intelligences (I put technology in the camp of human intelligence and nature as an intelligence beyond human), reflecting on a possible triadic relationship between technology, man and nature. I have been inspired by many philosophical and psychological theories - particularly the idea of the Anarch and the Forest developed by the writer Ernst Jünger; Hegel's writings in The Phenomenology of the Spirit and The Science of Logic; Maurice Merleau-Ponty's concept of the Intertwining, and Steigler's discussions about flying fish.
'From the beginning Gibson has explored the generative possibilities of the computer system, starting from her first experiences with video; and has over the last several years, developed a language that passes from analogue to digital and vice versa, in a perpetual cycle. A wild, primeval and sentient nature seems to flow undisturbed from her works. The fluctuating overlapping of planes in her paintings is analogous to an uninterrupted conversion of the point of view, necessary according to the artist, to overcome the anthropocentric dimension. The form that changes continuously could be seen as a metaphor for a world in perennial evolution whilst also alluding to a hoped-for process of raising consciousness beyond one’s limits, and above all, beyond the ancient conception that still places man exclusively at the centre of everything.'
