    Elizabeth Keithline SMARTER / FASTER / HIGHER in collaboration with Jeff Keithline

    Human beings are biologically programmed to evolve – to become ‘Smarter, Faster, Higher’. Technology has given us new tools with which to accomplish this end. Simply by opening a laptop we create the potential to increase our mental capacity. However, as far as we may seem to have come from our roots in the natural world, technology mirrors nature in the way it evolves using replication. Smarter, Faster, Higher explores...

    Human beings are biologically programmed to evolve – to become ‘Smarter, Faster, Higher’. Technology has given us new tools with which to accomplish this end. Simply by opening a laptop we create the potential to increase our mental capacity. However, as far as we may seem to have come from our roots in the natural world, technology mirrors nature in the way it evolves using replication. Smarter, Faster, Higher explores this idea by drawing the viewer into a current of figures that traverse the Swartz gallery. Using a wire weaving technique that she has employed since 1990, Elizabeth Keithline, in collaboration with her husband Jeff, arrays an installation of woven wire human beings and wire trees. Some of the figures are frozen in a crawl, some in a walk, and some in a run as they spread out across the gallery.
