    Ian Haig (AU) works at the intersection of visual arts and media arts.  His work explores the strangeness of everyday reality and focuses on the themes of the human body, devolution, abjection, transformation and psychopathology, often seen through the lens of low cultural forms. Previous works have explored subjects ranging from the science fiction of sexuality and the degenerative and malign aspects of pervasive new technologies to the cultural forms of fanaticism and cults and the ideas of attraction and repulsion. Over the years the trajectory of Haig’s vision has encompassed various media from site-specific installation projects, Super 8 movies, interactive sculpture, comics, and noise music to animations, videos, drawings, web projects, and large scale gallery installations.
