Orchids in the Land of Technology

  • WIP
  • Experiment

Semester project developed as a guest student in the Digital Graphics class (Class of Christoph Knoth & Konrad Renner) at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts (HFBK) with the background of investigating the physical fleetingness of possessions in the digital space. Questions about the reproducibility, aura of a material place and its traceability become visible with the help of tracking technologies and offer the possibility of being viewed and changed interactively. The question will be explored - can the attachment of a place to its location break down and expand, and through digital possession expand, bypass physical boundaries and enable new perspectives, or do our technologies only serve as liminal space for material reality?
