TRANSFER IS PLEASED TO PRESENT the first solo exhibition from Giselle Zatonyl. ‘Discrete Systems’ is a new body of work, conceived as an immersive multimedia installation for the gallery. Zatonyl models in 3D space, shaping forms whose motion is directed by a series of modified parametric functions. Characteristic traits emerge as these forms evolve. Organic and soothing qualities appear, which in turn shape their environment — a system in which to assimilate.
Zatonyl describes Discrete Systems as “a framework that can be used as an analogy for many situations, but was specifically generated by feelings of entrapment that emerge from consumption and production anxiety… [including] social media, in which indefinite narratives become distilled into simple, digestible content (like hashtags) that exist in a nebulous space framed by a rigid structure of information.”
