Diane Edwards confronts the interpolating realities of digital optimization and ecological collapse building virtual worlds, moving-image and installation to draw focus on our synthesising landscape, a world conjured from computation, the uneasy disjuncture between life and artificiality and the psychoactive affect and impact of existing within such a deep and turbulent tangle.  Recent projects have investigated catastrophe and complex systems; the alien nature of human cognition; environmental mutation and digital world building; speculative notions of life after mass extinction and the socio-technological issues of AI, technology dependence and labour.
