Through a range of media, Desirée Holman explores the overlap of New Age mysticism and science fiction and the iconography associated with these realms—including aliens, auras, and time travelers—to examine the space where fantasy can reveal truth. Sophont in Action emerges from Holman’s long-standing interest in the communal uses of technology for creative, spiritual, and social fulfillment. Oscillating between terrestrial and extraterrestrial, and new and old ages, Holman’s current body of work speaks largely to our culturally developed conceptions of “otherness” and the shaping of identity within an evolving world.
