Morl explores human connection under natural and technological networks, and how bodies, perceptions of us, and language inform our engagements with environments and interfaces. They use self-portraiture, performance, digital photography and images, poetry, sound, film, drawings, paintings, sculptures, and scientific installations, as mediums to examine the paradoxes and polarities of social exchanges within shared physical and virtual spaces. Through these systems, Morl who is genderfluid and autistic, uses the visual vocabularly and characters embedded in cyberspace and inspired by autobiography and personal mythology to converse with and reflect on subcultures, investigating communal living, collective memory, agency, care, belonging, refuge, and emotional reverence. Outcomes of these dialogues include paintings assessing the interactions within apps communicating perception of ‘touch’ and emphasising the experience and barriers of living in a body rather than observing one, sonic landscapes and poetic videos recounting journeys to intimacy and self-discovery, subverting objectification in historical or cyberspace video game scenes through ‘avatars’ and reimagining those with autonomy instead of as subjects, photographic maps which investigate the performativity of masculinity and edited digital bodies under steroid culture, and installations merging paintings and scientific apparatuses assessing the sensoriums within medical facilities in relation to feelings of hope. Locating and merging evidence, speculative fiction, and imagination, Morl seeks to reveal these relationships, providing a bridge for alternative communication and colloborative approaches through work. As a result, in presentation work collectively reflects oscillating ideas informed by neuroscience, non-linear biology,linguistics, reflecting genderfluidity and posing questions around our existence within a modernising perceptive multidimensional hyperdigital future.
