Digital Murals - Los Cybrids
Los Cybrids: La Raza Techno-Crítica are three artists exploring cultural and somatic mutations caused by the implosion of advanced information technology. Amid the tensions of the fast-paced mythologies of the Information Age, Los Cybrids have emerged to challenge notions that purport a friction-free market, a one-world community and global access at our fingertips. Los Cybrids employ performance, burla, and high-tech art to undermine the uncritical, passive acceptance of the overarching social, cultural and environmental consequences of Information Technologies.
A “Cybrid” is a Latino digi-tech artist from an ethnic demographic disproportionately under-represented in the cyberworld. We function as a collaborative artistic group that performatively counters the hyperbolic discourse around “cyberspace.” As a junta, we instigate a critical dialogue around access and desire in cyber-culture, considering multiple issues of economic equality, cultural transformation, social reorganization, educational imperatives, and environmental impact.
