Digital, Ceramics, Moving image

enorê is a Brazilian multidisciplinary artist, based at Somerset House Studios, who works with 3D printed ceramics, textile and video.

Their work revolves around the fluidity of digital media into physicality and back, the modes of translation that arise from this kind of dynamics and how this relates to how the body processes information. Using 3D scans and digital data to establish links between physical and digital realms, they bring into physical existence elements which can normally only be mediated through digital technology.

During their residency, enorê has been researching modes of virtual care and embodiment through the medium of the Tamagotchi. They are interested in how the act of caring for and carrying a virtual object can be thought of in terms of entanglement between physical and digital spaces, the relationship between portals and portability, virtual reality as a portal between multiple modes of embodiment and temporality, and digital temporality itself — such as the way digital objects are expected to exist above time, with digital files being constantly recreated in memory every time they are accessed.

enorê was a recipient of the Jerwood Somerset House Studios Residency, supported by the Jerwood Developing Artists Fund.
