Modify presents artwork by Sandra Zanetti (USA), Benjamin Valentín Román (USA), Jenny Nguyen (USA) and Will Crosby (UK) that explore the eﬀect modiﬁcations have on the self and society as a whole. Human actions and reactions are decided by an analytic process the mind encounters in everyday situations. At the root of this process is the primal desire to survive and gain acceptance in society.
In these moments where humans instinctually weigh options and make choices based on societal observation, we believe the choices we make will provide us with safety. But at what point are we sacriﬁcing the self? While our life experiences are individual, we still ride this continuous passage of endless choices, based oﬀ of external factors that we interact with on a daily basis. Whether the modiﬁcations we make are physical, material, psychological, or technological we modify ourselves to survive in constantly ﬂuctuating interpersonal and societal worlds.
All of the artists in this show are in the ﬁrst quarter of their lives. Toward the end of our lives, we will assess the complete self in relation to the modiﬁed self through the updated deﬁnition of the human landscape we have created universally. We will look back on our lives and remember what we decided to hide, what we conformed to, what we spoke up against and how we modiﬁed to survive.
