The sacred and psychedelic multimedia art of Lala Abaddon

By DJ Pangburn
"When Something Inside You Dies" 24x36'' Woven work
NEW YORK---Artists occasionally react to technology in blatantly obvious ways. Brooklyn-based artist Lala Abaddon, whose work straddles the analog and digital divide, is more interested in exploring the less obvious interconnections between beings and technology. Abaddon's work ranges from the woven pieces Martyr Syndrome and Fractal Realities that look digital, to 35mm photographs of existing images to create pixelated effects, and 35mm macro images of paintings that can appear luminous. And in her Transfiguration project, Abaddon explores the concept of artistic ritual within the context of internet live-streaming. [link]
