George Morl uses their work to explore human connection under technological networks, and how bodies, perceptions of us, and language inform our engagements with environments and interfaces. They use paintings, sculptures, photography, performance, sound, and scientific installations, to interrogate heirarchies and social exchanges within shared physical and virtual spaces. Often they use the visual vocabularly and characters embedded in cyberspace, fiction, and autobiography to converse and colloborate with communities.
Recent dialogues include paintings assessing the construction of self-image and design of dating apps, collaboratively producing films within support centres, constructing personas to enter organisations documenting and challenging power structures, interventions within museum collections responding to allegories of performance around masculinity, investigating relationship between rituals of steroid culture and online chatrooms through photographs, composing avatars which subvert and reimagine scenes in paralells of video games and art history with autonomy instead of objectification, and installations merging paintings and scientific apparatuses assessing sensoriums in medical facilities.
Through merging evidence, performance, speculative fiction, and imagination, Morl seeks to reveal the relationship between power, barriers, and emotions in these systems and spaces, whilst posing questions around our existence in a modernising multidimensional hyperdigital future.
