Transfer and disappearance
I think of data and its mixture with our bodies’ as a clear sign of the permeability of the material world. Data is real and omnipresent, but not inescapably true. We are not only transmitters of it—we spin it in motion. A download of “us” is happening in the digital space, and maybe erasure. Being manipulated, I try to use manipulation as my own strategy. In this work I am attempting to transfer myself by movement. A space and a body, made by data are continuously uncertain, and by entangling it’s bits with those of the body, a space can become a person and, in a sense—give their information away.
Transfer and Disappearance was commissioned for the Arbitrary Art of Numbers at the Media Center by IFP in New York, curated by Hans Tammen.
