...WHEN THE INTERNET WAS SLOW


...When the Internet Was Slow, 4 element installation:  UV print on aluminium (70 x 100 cm), monologue (recording), print on adhesive vinyl (40 x 60 cm), 3 metal pixels on the floor, 2019.

Print screen taken while walking in the virtual space. This artwork is a part of my ongoing research initiated in 2017, which focuses on experimenting with the evolution of digital on the Internet. While investigating the subject of the online visual world, I came across many pejorative terms and statements – such as ‘low resolution’, ‘lack of aura’, ‘being just a copy’, ‘orphaned images’, ‘visual overflow’ or even ‘image pollution’. 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.
