Technophobia" ... in the (Web Site and) CD ROM of that name by
digital artist Dooley Le Cappellaine. The
word refers to new media that immerses viewers in various phobias, The
Object? To demonstrate how this format broadens our perceptions of "real"
and "delusionary" fears - this work reminds us of the link
between terror and beauty....."
Weinstein, Wired Magazine)
Choosing "Technophobia" as the title for a CD-ROM featuring
interactive multimedia works at first appears to be paradoxical -
counting on our attraction to new technologies and at the same time
highlighting our anxieties about them. But this ambivalence towards
new technologies perfectly captures the underlying theme of this CD-
"Enerergetic and refreshingly rough edged, Technophobia is an
exhibit of a dozen or so mostly interactive computer mediated contemporary
artworks. Light years away from the hermetic superrealism and fractual
abstractions of the Siggraph trade show variety, the work on this
disk - from the disorienting subterranean space of Alan Koninger's
"Megalopolis" to the mega-corporate magic realism of Guillaume
Wolf and Genevieve Gauckler's "RGBforce" - displays a raw,
confrontational energy ... Drawing on underground film, performance
and pop culture, this work is spontaneous and disruptive in a way
that feels low tech even at it's most synthetic..."
(Frank Lanz ID magazine, Nov 96)
vision behind the project
I think that this new technology offers the most exciting thing
happening in contemporary art today. On this CD I worked with
other artists who ranged the whole gamut from those with no computer
experience at all to those who had training in specialised tertiary
institutions. I was interested in this technology as a way to
move away from an engagement with self referential art practice
with its repetitive and increasingly claustrophobic rationale;
as a sort of third base after conceptual and neo-conceptual art
making; as something other than arrangements of form according
I'm using the technology to transcend the limitations of physics,
finance and time inherent in other exhibition methods. The exhibitions
exist on CD-ROM and the Web.
One of the most exciting things about working with this technology
is that art becomes more experiential and less a kind of expensive
I've felt for a long time that art has to go outside itself, that
deconstruction has worked itself out as a modus operandi. For
me working with digital technology provides the freedom to create
something almost indefinable but which reflects the obsessions
of my generation - cinema, popular culture, cutting edge art and
