New technologies appear in Jess Coldrey’s sculptures, festival installations, and mechanical video works, taking on the language of experiments, games, and electronic tangles. Objects are scanned, sensed, mechanised, 3d-printed and lasered through the constant knitting of humans and machines.

Coldrey’s work playfully shares the perspective of social determinist Leila Green, who argues that society ultimately shapes technology rather than vice versa. She believes our fears, ecstasies, and mythologies about technology disconnect us, creating a dissonance between the present and the past’s future.

Coldrey’s recent Retro Futurism project represents this sentiment through the absurd fusion of 60’s space-age futurism with emotionally-loaded modern machines.
