Artist talk with American art collective MSHR. The duo established in 2011 in Portland, Oregon by Brenna Murphy and Birch Cooper, builds and explores sculptural electronic systems. Their practice is a self-transforming entity with its outputs patched into its inputs, expressing its form through interactive installations, virtual environments and live improvisations. MSHR is a modular acronym, designed to hold varied ideas over time.
