Kara Gut’s work investigates the new shape of human intimacy formed by internet lifestyle, constructed detachment from reality, and the power dynamics of the virtual. Using image and screen-based media, she explores the necessity of certain digital spaces. She is specifically interested in how the patriarchal conversation within these spaces can be subverted to generate new meaning.
