Laptop Reflections

Installation Laptop Reflections,
part of the exhibition INFO DECO DATA

“The screen sees me the whole time while I am looking at it, I am not embarrassed by it, it is neutral, invisible even, I don’t register its existence, it is just a glowing surface.
The screen is inextricably connected to my life. It is a door that I pull shut behind me, which gives me access to a space where I can disappear. It is my gateway to information, it is my space for communication, it is a space where I carry out my work and enjoy myself.
I entered into this connection and I am addicted to it.
For 9 months, starting in April 2009, our laptops took a portrait photo through the built in webcam and a screenshot of our desktops every 5 minutes while we were using it.
We have arranged and displayed this enormous amount of imagery in the hope that both patterns and details will become visible.”
