Katabasis Project (Sara Goodman and Cory Hernandez)
Katabasis is the name of the internet based project by Sara Goodman (Chicago) and Cory Hernandez (Florida). The two digital artists met online and bonded over the sudden loss of friends. Katabasis “is a decent of some type, such as moving downhill, the sinking of the winds or sun, military retreat, a trip to the underworld…” Both Goodman and Hernandez are children of the 1980’s and grew up influenced by Cyberpunk and Science Fiction aesthetics. Katabasis digital art aims to take the viewer to a science fiction underworld, a place to commune with ghosts and spirits and the dead in an other-worldly plane.
