This volume presents the innovative work of New York–based filmmaker and video artist Trisha Baga (born 1985) and is published in conjunction with her solo show theeye, theeye & theear at the Pirelli HangarBicocca site in Milan. Her works combine different languages and mediums, drawing upon TV, cinema and amateur videos to investigate topics such as gender identity and the relationship between the real and the digital worlds. The catalog is conceived as a sci-fi narration that expands on the artist’s personal universe: structured like a mise en abyme, the volume links excerpts of writings from the scientific, literary and artistic worlds with various critical texts. In addition, this volume contains extensive photo documentation of the show in Milan and a complete filmography by the artist.
