Reality Shift is an online exhibition juried by Brielle Jenkins

How many worlds do we inhabit? Just one? Or do we flow between many? What of the digital and the physical? Humans and avatars? We’ve grown accustomed to a life of dual realities. A life where we supplement our physical routines, our handshakes and coffee dates, with a secondary digital state of being. That state gives us maps for our outings, news for small talk, even DM’s for connection. But what becomes of those realities when their roles are switched? When a pandemic sweeps across humanity, leaving isolation and a twisted sense of reality in its wake? When the physical sphere ceases to function, and digital existence becomes the new primary system? We talk through tweets instead of about them. Stare into lenses instead of eyes. We still live. Still bounce between worlds. Now though, in reoriented, reprioritized bodies.
