Bridging the mechanical with the organic, the machine with the inert and systems with agency, syn- presents the prize-winning works for academic excellence in research and practice of LASALLE Alumni Danial Shafiq (BA) and Victoria Hertel (MA). Both artists explore new materialities through a shared interest in the vitality of objects encountered in space. Victoria has been invested in the de- and refamiliarization of materials as functions of disruption to our routinized perception of objects, addressing ideas of unsettlement as perspective-shifting happenstance. Danial delves into the interaction between humans and objects by studying their form and function and displacing technology as a means for improvisation and accentuation of the inconspicuous in this network. Together, their work produces both a synaptic and auricular response to the site and architecture of the exhibition space at starch.
