Lily Hassioti looks at the social, cultural, and emotional impact that the rapid development of digital technologies has on our everyday life. As these advancements blend with our surroundings to create an unnoticeable Internet of Things, Lily discusses the artistic, aesthetic and ethical concerns that arise in these digitally infused environments. Lily’s work is transitory or ephemeral, foregrounding human presence and inviting interaction in order for each piece to be complete.
