- Part of...Designing Desire
Joey Holder’s multimedia installations explore the structures and hierarchies of the technological and natural world. Mixing elements of biology, nanotechnology and natural history against computer program interfaces, screen savers and measuring devices, Holder see’s no object or substance in any fixed state or with any permanent definition, identity or order; everything is transforming and morphing into something else; everything is a mutant and a hybrid.
