exhibition: "Undo", Xs gallery, Warsaw
organizators: Fundacja Badań Przestrzeni Publicznej TU, Ośrodek Sztuki XS
The project presented in the XS art space in Warsaw is an attempt to recognize the aesthetic of transience of things and phenomena in the virtual world. I am fascinated by the possibilities of online platforms and how behavior and tensions arising in the virtual world infiltrate the physical world, where the oppressive rhetoric of the internet affects our identity. Enhancing aversion to the physical world, which is rampant in the virtual space, must ultimately lead to discord. In this encounter the physical world has to deal with the consequences of what we did wrong in the network.
Is there some catastrophic nostalgia in the air? Our memory goes back more or less to the beginnings of our social network accounts. The present was supposed to be archived, and it became even more volatile. Today we are trying to discover artifacts, pixel-bit layers of the masses of information, images, and contents from the border of notes and memories, which are covered by dust. Finally, under the layers of bitmaps, a memory of meeting on someone’s wall is the only thing left. The Internet does not forget, but it passes, like any other phenomenon in the real world. Despite pressing ctrl+z for hours, there will be nothing left after the twentieth time, and everything that was lost will become a ground for subsequent information. Our level of perception ends after the thousandth square pixel, the rest is a gigahertz white noise crammed in wavelengths and fiber optics, which, in reality, is infinite.
