Argentinelee uses interactive video installations, performance, photography and sculpture, and all the current tools of the digital image to study the new relationship between humans and machines. Argentinelee questions the new patterns dictated by the computer-aided society. The feedback connections between emotions and logics, individuality and standardization are key. The work of Argentinelee reveals the excess of mechanization and virtualization in the postmodern world, in which speed of progress supersedes humanity and sensibility in favor of power and control. In her art, Argentinelee expresses the problems emerging in a novel technological environment, opposing a strong man to a weak man by way of new media, such as computer, digital video and digital sound.
