Silicon Remembers Carbon
The central element in Silicon Remembers Carbon is a large video image projected down onto a bed of sand on the floor of the installation space. Visitors' movements subtly affect the mixing and dissolving of video images and sounds. Each visitor leaves traces which affect the experience of the work for later visitors.
The installation presents a fragile illusion, a con sensual hallucination, requiring the visitors' participation for its continuation, through their body movements, a willingness to blur their eyes slightly to hide the scan lines, and their ability to project depth into the flat image. They are offered a range of possibilities from sustaining the illusion by creating and maintaining distance, to dispelling it by stepping into the illusionary space itself. For the artist, the visitors' movement through this range of possibilities represents a more important interaction than the direct interaction with the technical system itself.
