This month’s Window Project installation is presented in conjunction with the GLI.TC/H In Media Res Theme Week (February 4-8) also organized by Evan Meaney. Hope you get a chance to see the installation one evening this month and follow the antics and conversation online at In Media Res.
About the Installation:
presenting now a gallery of explored codecs. cyborgian portraits, separated from us by time and space, by formatting and compression – the very things we have come to use as reasons for history. the very things which we have put outside of ourselves for our own good reasons. these re-presentations, both file and flesh-based, in waiting and in celebration, suggest options for a deconstructable future. we have manufactured such systems to keep ourselves alive forever, and we are somehow dumbfounded when they grow old with us. besides all that, knowing you for as long as i have, i can’t remember when you’ve looked prettier.
