Katie Hadgis' latest project is titled Immaterial Girl Living in an Immaterial World, a generative, virtual world rendered in real-time through The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game engine. As Hadgis writes, this work "shares traits with surrealist art, conceptual art, machinima film, and the real-fake". What is particularly fascinating is the fact that the video is complemented by two inkjet prints layered beneath laser engraved, fluorescent light illuminated plexiglas depicting and illustrating the rules of the virtual world. The prints are titled Immaterial World and Immaterial Girl.
Immaterial Girl Living in an Immaterial World was featured at the Pratt Institute's MFA & BFA Interactive Arts and Imaging Thesis Exhibition at Pablo's Birthday Gallery, 30 April 2017 - 06 May 2017.
Katie Hadgis experiments "in making physical works about that which is digital". She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
