Thinking about how nature is networked through its food webs and environments, Holder
connects forms which have emerged through our human taste, culture and industrial processes to investigate complex digital systems that dissolve notions of the ‘natural’ and the ‘artificial’. GM products, food wholesalers, restaurants and supermarkets are incorporated into an extended virtual web of organisms that are affecting our environmental systems, and challenging our perception of evolution, adaptation and change.

Joey Holder is an artist interested in the structures and hierarchies of the technological and natural world and how these systems are constantly abstracted. Mixing elements of biology, nanotechnology and natural history against computer program interfaces, screen savers and measuring devices, she sees 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.
