As an artist and facilitator George explores human connection under technological networks, and how bodies, perceptions of us, and language barriers inform our engagements with environments and interfaces. They use self-portraiture, performance, photography, poetry, sound, film, drawings, paintings, sculptures, and scientific installations, as mediums to examine polarities of social exchanges within these shared physical and virtual spaces. Often they use the visual vocabularly and characters embedded in cyberspace and autobiography to converse and colloborate with subcultures.
Recent dialogues include paintings assessing the intersection of disability in the construction of queer apps and access to private space, establishing messaging services with autistic individuals within support centres and collaboratively producing films, constructing personas and attaining roles in media organisations exposing prejudices, interventions within museum collections disrupting allegories of performance of masculinity, investigating steroid culture and restaging rituals, inventing avatars which subvert and reimagine scenes in video games and history with autonomy instead of objectification, and installations merging paintings and scientific apparatuses assessing the sensoriums within medical and health facilities.
As a result, through locating and merging evidence, speculative fiction, and imagination, Morl seeks to reveal these relationships attempting to support collaborative approaches in communities. In presentation work collectively reflects on oscillating ideas posing questions around our existence within a modernising perceptive multidimensional hyperdigital future.
