    Smith places visitors in the role of scientific explorers encountering creatures that appear to hail from both the biological and digital realms. Composed of rigid wooden ‘bones’ woven with the soft ‘flesh’ of recycled Socrates billboard images, the installation delivers an enveloping environment evocative of the immersive, enmeshed, and omnipresent digital realm.
