Composing societal testimonies, George Morl explores evolving human connection and intimacy under modernising technology. They use self-portraiture, poetry, texts, photographic maps, sound, digital images, sensory paintings and sculptures, or scientific installations, as mediums to recontextualise and vision erased history and social exchanges in networks within our physical and virtual spaces. Through these, Morl who is genderfluid and autistic, uses personas and assumes avatars inspired by autobiography to enter spaces, converse with communal subcultures, investigating belonging, refuge, validation, and emotional reverence; paintings assessing interactions across apps communicating perception of touch and the experience of living in a body rather than observing one, soundscapes and poetic videos recounting trans lives, graphics that critique and dismantle sexual and power dynamics in queer spaces, collective archives that disrupt performative allegory portraits in museum collections, the utilisation of avatars by those with neurological conditions in virtual worlds to communicate in ‘safe spaces’, images analysing the motivations behind the plethora of torsos manipulated through steroid culture and digital technology projecting men’s gym rituals on social media, installations assessing the sensoriums within medical facilities in relation to hope, sculptures channeling our assemblages of vigils following bereavement or isolation. Through merging evidence and ‘creative imagination’, Morl seeks to reveal these circumstances, providing a bridge to traverse alternative communication and communal approaches through work. As a result, collectively in presentation work centres on oscillating ideas, referencing esoteric or verboseness of Beat Literature, syntax, neurodivergence, non-linear biology, echoing Morl’s genderfluidity and our existence within a perceptive multidimensional hyperdigital future.
