Soft Ground: Back to the Swamp Forest  Currently based in Los Angeles, Breanna was raised in the mountains of Southern Appalachia where the landscape has been endlessly worked by technologies of extraction. Left behind is a scarred, soft ground.

The cartographic images in her “Soft Grounds” series present bits as matter and landscapes as information through the manipulation of tools engineered to digitize physical conditions. These unearthed and unwrapped visions of the landscape present both a familiar softness and an uncomfortable awareness of geological violence.

Exhibited at Vellum, Los Angeles. Curated by Jesse Damiani and Sinziana Velicescu.

variants (with Pierre Huyghe ; technical artist) Variants is a multipolar entity that perceives, generates and modifies. It is simultaneously an island and what that island could be in an alternate reality... The island has been scanned to become the environment of a live simulation. The two milieux, physical and digital, are permeable...A fictional narrative gives a set of rules and prompts, played out by an artificial neural network that generates unpredictable mutations in the simulation, of what is present on the island, animate or inanimate, sounds or things, such as trees, trash, animals, or humans.
