The title, A Mesh is also A Snare, is derived from an ecological concept that all forms of life are connected in a vast entangling mesh. No construct exists independently from the entanglement, nor does “human” or “nature” exist as separate hierarchical entities; they are interdependent. Mesh/Snare uses this line of thinking to explore the myriad ways in which technology connects art and science; neither field precedes the other but instead acts upon each other to form new cultural and political ideologies. The mesh that makes up the artist-curatorial collective Grizzly Grizzly has invited fellow practitioners to pursue the elusive and complex nexus between art and science.
