The electronic viewing screen: it's re-presentational. What we see and hear is reticulated.It's broadcasted, narrowcasted, distributed, uploaded, downloaded and disseminated. The apparatus is one of telethesia. We are constantly removed, rendered absent, and yet we continually strive for sensations of closeness with this streaming data. We receive, at most, instances of re-presentations, deferred signals - temporally and spatially distorted - and yet we still invest, longing for intimacies the technology is unable to remember. It's all in real time, but where and when?
self-remembering - optimal viewing distance is the fourth in a series of screen based installations interrogating memory and the electronic viewing screen as utilising common technologies of re-presentation and of simulation. The installation seeks to articulate connections between memory and screen as viewed through the sieve of these technologies.
