Jawa El Khash is an artist, technologist and researcher. She uses technology as a medium to play on the poetics of the everyday nature of living in the world. Through the ephemeral mediums of painting, holography, virtual reality, and online simulations - facsimiles of our world can be created, playing on the poetics of time, space and memory, offering a new way of perceiving and sensing the world around us. The lens of technology expands the imaginative horizon of our view of the world, and the objects, spaces and living things that occupy it. El Khash creates replicas of reality that blend the line between the invisible and the visible, the real and the simulated, the fictional and the fact.
