5 people we met at the Technology As Hands opening

“Whether it’s something that looks analog or something that looks technical, it’s showing how everyone is using technology in some space.”

Friday night dozens of those in the Brooklyn tech and art scenes gathered at Sky Gallery in Gowanus for the opening of Technology As Hands, a tech-based art show of pieces created specifically for the project.

Shane Neufeld is an artist and architect who lives in New York.

“For this whole series of work, the idea was to print these out on a printer,” Neufeld explained. “I did the sketches with highlighters and markers and would scan them and then put them into Photoshop and Illustrator. I exported the digital files and made everything into a single layer. I’m interested in the shifting and the mistakes.”

Patrick Gallagher and Chris Klapper recently got back from a six-month trip around the world, during which they worked on pieces, including this insanely technical sand mandala.

“It’s binary code and says ‘data ata data.’ It’s sort of Dadaism with information technology being where it is,” Klapper explained.

“The idea is to create concept and content and transform it into information,” Gallagher said.

“Just like any information you have, it becomes abstracted and becomes an art form. We want to give it to you in a way that’s aesthetically nice and draws you in more,” Klapper added.

Erin Przekop and Tom Critchlow are the team that organized the show. The duo has a new type of online gallery business as well, called Fiercely Curious, which attempts to bring artists and buyers closer together.

“The whole point to this show for me was showing how people utilize technology who don’t look like they do,” Przekop explained. “A lot of it is going to look handmade but there’s a lot going through on the back end. Whether it’s something that looks analog or something that looks technical, it’s showing how everyone is using technology in some space.”
