Engima Bodytech is a new exhibition by Glasgow-based artist and filmmaker Kimberley O’Neill.

Enigma Bodytech is an exploration of the interconnection between energy, technology and the body. The new film merges the machine and self in a circuitous visual relationship as it follows a female protagonist’s road trip through the Californian desert and Silicon Valley, a place associated with the emergence of personalised technologies. During this journey, Kimberley records the filmic landscape in and from a car, and captures audio from her own body.

For the film, Kimberley draws inspiration from Rudolph Wurlitzer’s Nog (1969) and Ann Quin’s Tripticks (1973), which use a journey or road trip as an analogy for individual’s quests to disconnect from society and escape the self. In Enigma Bodyech, Kimberley questions how these countercultural narratives of the 1960-70s intersect with the development of machines, computing and network technologies.

Satellites Programme is Collective’s development programme for emergent artists and producers based in Scotland.
