Vivarium is a site-specific installation created for the Counterpath bookstore window. Formed using a “3-D pen,” these plastic sculptures play on the aesthetics of high-tech/digital culture alongside the handmade and tactile. Stuart’s hand-rendered sculptures are suggestive of craft traditions, such as weaving, knitting, and basket making, as well as wire-frame geometry, neural networks, cloud computing, and bio-systems.

Jodi Stuart holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts from Manukau Institute of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand, and an MFA from Auckland University, and is a recent alumni of RedLine Contemporary Art Center’s Artist in Residence program. Her work is an on-going exploration of issues surrounding the body and technology. In her practice she oscillates between the desire to re-insert the body into virtual experience and the materialization of real objects out of the virtual.
