Warren Neidich brings to any discussion platform a unique interdisciplinary position that he calls “trans-thinking”.
He currently uses video and neon to create cross polinating conceptual text based works that reflect upon
situations at the border zone of art, science and social justice. His performative and sculptural work, the
Pizzagate Neon, 2018, recenty on display at the Venice Biennial, 2019 analyzed through a large hanging
neon sculpture the relations of Fake News, the networked attention economy, the evolving techno-cultural
habitus and the co-evolving architecture of the brain. His recent conceptual project Drive-By-Art ( Public
Sculpture in This Moment of Social Distancing) just opened on the South Fork of Long Island and Los
Angeles to some acclaim including reviews in the NY Times, Hyperallergic, The Art Newspaper, Time Out
