Ambiguous Origins is an exhibition exploring the boundary between the physical and the digital through augmented reality, installation and film. Drawing connections among science fiction, new media and mixed-race identity, Ambiguous Origins chronicles the journey of a space explorer and an Object of Ambiguous Origin. The works address contingency of identity in different contexts and the process of being (mis-)identified.

 

Adrienne Matheuszik is an interdisciplinary artist focusing in new media. Based in Toronto, Matheuszik holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Ottawa and a Graduate Certificate from Concordia University. She is interested in hybridity and mixed-race identity. She works primarily with digital mediums such as augmented reality, video, sculpture and interactive installation.
