Passage, Jacolby Satterwhite
Jacolby Satterwhite’s video works bring together 3-D animation, drawings, and live performance to construct utopian digital worlds. Within this uncharted digital architecture, Satterwhite explores personal history, identity and memory. Satterwhite often incorporates personal sources such as his mother’s drawings, which he hand-traces and imports into 3D animation programs to build lush, computer-generated landscapes. Into these digital realms he inserts multiple elaborately costumed avatars, whose kinetic gestures compose a sensual physical choreography. Fusing pop culture, subculture, and art history in his video work and performance, Satterwhite creates visually dazzling tableaux that reflect the changing spatial and bodily anxieties and desires of the digital world. Satterwhite’s computer-generated realms densely layered with proliferating drawings, objects and performances encompass animated narratives of personal memory and identity.
