In the XR (mixed reality) exhibition, wwwunderkammer, Brooklyn-based artist, Carla Gannis appeals to the 16th Century "cabinet of curiosities" to explore the boundaries between the real and the virtual, nature and artifice, science and science-fiction in contemporary networked culture and society. In the process, she mines the transformative potential in speculative invention, revealing the uncanny underdetermination of the world in her virtual realities, while conversely calling attention to the virtual – as culture, fantasy, and ideology, as much as technology – already at work in the everyday.
