Description New Function is a collaboration between two Portland artists, Daniel J Glendening and Jason Lee Starin. Glendening presents new objects and images challenging mortality, impotence, hope and prosthetic spirituality. Starin’s practice reconsiders function as being more than utility by extending its meaning into the experiential need to comprehend with our hands. His interest lies in how digital material influences our notion of physical form in reciprocal and possibly reactionary manners.
