Networked communication is commonly thought to be transparent and immediate.
However, for me, based on the everyday experience of growing up in Eastern Europe, information always seemed to be something that you have to reach for, traversing vast distances.
Exerting force against distance, the latter always seems to pose a burden on vision. Tension appears between one’s desire to see and the medium it has to cross.
How and what one is able to see seems to have an intimate relationship to one's actual position in the world. The travelling or dwelling body is imbedded into a field of visibilities, horizons that it carries around with itself wherever it goes, no matter what media it uses to expand itself.
These latencies and tensions of vision are the main issues surrounding my work, as I aim to explore how the materiality and sheer size of media affect communication and concepts of far and immediate.
