"soft relations" by Tristan Espinoza

  • Forge 2636 Huron Street Los Angeles, CA, 90065 United States (map)

soft relations is an interactive software installation created by Tristan Espinoza for the 2019 Level Ground Residency Program + Festival.

soft relations is a piece of custom software that records people’s relationships over time. It explores how connection and attachment are complicated by technological networks that simulate proximity without retaining the kind of intimacy that comes from a shared sense of place. This friction grounds the work as the artist seeks to find alternative ways of being in relation.

The show will include special programming from Tiny Tech Zines and also include a bar, panel discussion, live performances, and interactive elements curated by the artist.
