Adriana Ramić’s work often deals with the way we cope with abstract and massive quantities of data and images in contemporary society. These works take form as websites, drawings, and assemblages of objects which take this surfeit of information as inspiration and spin them into aestheticized and abstruse works. Previous works have drawn from such sources as Craigslist’s image databases, data gathered on solar wind movements, and temperature data recorded and shared in the homes of internation users of the websites “Room Weather Data” and “Home Sensors.” Ramić’s Craigslist-Assisted Readymade actively searches the “Free Stuff” section on Craigslist across the United States, dynamically creating compositions of three free objects that come together to create a propositional readymade.
Ramić is a recent graduate of the University of California, San Diego’s Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts program. This is her first exhibition in New York.
