...WHEN THE INTERNET WAS SLOW


When the Internet Was Slow is a part of an ongoing research project initiated in 2017, which focuses on experimenting with the evolution of digital images in the human world. While investigating the subject of the digital world, I came across  many pejorative terms / statements – such as ‘low resolution’, ‘lack of aura’, ‘being just a copy’, ‘orphaned images’, ‘visual overflow’ or even ‘image pollution’ – that made me feel sorry for digital images. Inspired by popular meditation guides available online, I created an imaginary monologue in which the digital image tries to free itself from everyday worries, as well as those associated with its physicality.
