Although her work occasionally references social and political concerns, Shirley Shor is primarily a formalist working in digital electronics. As she explains, “In my work, I think about space as a verb, as an action, as a dynamic process that we are all taking part in. I recreate space by constantly changing it.” Shor accomplishes this with dynamic software written in a computer language that generates non-repeating moving images—patterns, colors, and surfaces—that are projected onto a physical space. At times, the forms in Core resemble digital maps of the physical world, only to morph into abstract, camouflage-like patterns.
