---In my digital and interactive art, I create immersive installations that blur the line between the virtual and physical worlds. Using a variety of sensors and interfaces, I create interactive experiences that respond to the viewer's movements and actions, encouraging them to engage with the artwork in new and exciting ways---
Brain "I squish and squash my memories, I berate myself to myself [by myself, alone]. I smashed an image of a brain and sent it into digital distortion. Is it done to overcome the constant rumination on past self-inflicted cringe?
I sarcastically laugh right in the face of the self-absorbed ego, and it liberates. It really does. 2023"
Daria Zhest is a visual/conceptual artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Her work redefines the proximity of physical and metaphorical space. When creating she designs a self-operating algorithm, extrapolates parts of it to transfer to a specific medium; starting off digitally, it intertwines with physical mediums. She has shown her works in various exhibitions, and currently is further developing her practice by colliding the use of digital spaces and traditional materials.
