In her films, installations, sculptures and digital works, Cécile B. Evans addresses the human condition and emotions, in particular as they come into contact with technological and physical structures that seek to contain them. The video essay AGNES (the end is near) (2014) follows AGNES as she raises personal questions about obsolescence, dependency, and the future. Hyperlinks or It Didn't Happen (2014), addresses the impact of digital information on the substance of feeling and being. What the Heart Wants (2016) explores how larger infrastructures—as guided by technological means—attempt to shape and define us as we adapt and evolve in the digital age.
