In Digital Mitosis, Lins Derry explores where nature ends and technology begins or how they interweave into the human experience. The organic body, no matter what context you put it in, can almost never be abstracted from its inherent figurativeness. Its animalistic and spiritual nature always dominates its expression. Through juxtaposing bodies with electronic music and “digital” gestures, Digital Mitosis finds the grey area between technology, nature, and humanity.
