Socio Synthetic: Digital Failures featuring Devon Makoto Lei and Jennifer Mehigan was a part of the Emergent Media Lab Series presented by B4BEL4B Gallery from February 27th - March 25th, 2016. Oakland based artist Devon Makoto Lei presented a series of new works that explored the embodiment and disembodiment of our digital existences - our social media personalities, cyber aliases, and our myriad relationships with screens and the 4th Dimension. The work was shown via iPads, tablets, and printed poetry. Ireland-based artist Jennifer Mehigan contributed new prints on fabric, a video installation, and joined us for a Q+A session via Skype from Singapore on opening night, February 27th, 2016. This video features footage from opening night and excerpts from the Q+A session led by curator Tiare Ribeaux.
