On How You Used My Slum As A Projection Surface For Your Zoom Meeting Conference

2020 // site-specific video projection / 3′ loop

On the screen Buddha is sitting in front of us, waiting to start a conversation. Slowly we see more screens on which other characters are facing us in the same way. Zooming out constantly, we slowly recognize a whole chaotic structure with many screens showing the faces of different characters trying to start a conversation. Conceived as a modular, site-specific video projection, the work is a critique of an overly optimistic, libertarian view of the digital future and the invisibility of its social and environmental impact on millions of people around the world who are not considered part of the digital turn.
