Brenna Murphy


Net artist Brenna Murphy uses computer programs to craft digital forms inspired by her observations of the physical world. Made using a variety of programs such as Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and Blender, her complex, abstract forms find synthesis between different digital disciplines. Murphy combines her digital prints with found objects, collages, videos, and even performance work in gallery spaces, seeking to cultivate relationships between these forms while bringing digital work into the physical realm. “I add and carve until the arrangement is balanced in a way that creates a perfectly cohesive, vibrating ecosystem,” Murphy says about her process, establishing an ongoing meditation on her psychedelic compositions of sensory experience across physical and virtual realms. Brenna Murphy also collaboratively creates sculptural analog synthesizers, interactive sound installations and rituals with Birch Cooper under the collective name MSHR. Her work has been widely shown internationally, with solo exhibitions including Liquid Vehicle Transmitter at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco USA,“~hieromesh~trance`scribr~~>” at Gloria Maria Gallery in Milan Italy and Brenna Murphy at Kunstverein Dusseldorf Germany.
