The computer-generated works by the American artist Brenna Murphy (born 1986) recall the psychedelic motifs of the hippie era. Often only available for viewing online, they are oriented on traditional folk art as well as its naturalistic, spiritual approaches, which the artist translates to the present day through her experimental exploration of digital possibilities.
The importance of the seemingly infinite expanses for Murphy, the constantly improving graphic programmes and the resultant, continuously expanding artistic room for manoeuvre cannot be underestimated. Self-built musical instruments, sound installations and arrangements as well as individual recordings of music in addition to the linking of folkloristic customs with modern digital techniques are likewise at the foreground of her creative artistic process.
