Hybrid Enviroscape TEST 1
Felice Grodin and AdrienneRose Gionta have collaborated on several projects. In 2015 they explored real estate speculation and virtual environments in the group exhibition Residential Properties. Currently, they are featured at Miami International Airport in the exhibition IM|Movable Assets. The exhibition explores what an experience might be at MIA in 500 years post-climate change. Additionally, they enjoy discussing the potentials and pitfalls of love on the internet and how bodies come together in virtual space. This has led to a fundamental question for both:
Felice Grodin is an artist with a background in architecture. Her practice focuses on the speculative integration of art by modeling present conditions and creating meaningful imprints upon them. She was recently featured zon Felice Grodin: Invasive Species on view at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), curated by Jennifer Inacio. The work mediates a future ecosystem through the lens of augmented reality. She is a member of the collaborative A.S.T. (Alliance of the Southern Triangle), which explores artistic and cultural possibilities reimagined in an era of climate change and political volatility. She has also contributed essays to various publications including The Miami Rail. Felice obtained her Bachelor of Architecture from Tulane University, where her thesis was a recipient of the Thomas J. Lupo Award for Metropolitan Studies, and her Master of Architecture with Distinction from Harvard University.
AdrienneRose Gionta, aka VJ_ARG_A_LICIOUS, works in performance, film/video, sculpture, drawing, and installation. Her work explores notions of fatness, embodiment, and fulfillment in “real” and online spaces. She examines how body image mediates our access/relationship with pleasure, ambiguating the distinction between notions of utopia and dystopia through subverting and re-appropriating preexisting codes or “carrying on” multidimensional histories driven by the fear of it all disappearing into never existing when everything dies. She summarizes her position within, and as: Pop Culture Consigliere, VJ soothsayer, Rose Whisperer, Digital Ideation Butterfly and Extended Reality Evangelist. Tumblr Virtuoso, Internet of Things Svengali and 50 Shades of Earl Grey.
