Video works by I/M/D graduating students in Street View Cinema in The Hague

Twee videowerken van KABK-afstudeerstudenten Adam Centko & Carmen Roca Igual (afdeling Interactive/Media/Design ) worden vertoond in 1646 in de projectruimte in Den Haag. 1646 heeft de grote etalage getransformeerd tot een tijdelijke Street View Cinema, dagelijks te bezichtigen tussen 21.00 - 23.00 uur.

De twee werken reflecteren op technologie, eenzaamheid en de rol van digitale omgevingen in tijden van de huidige pandemie. Uit onze relatie tot de digitale wereld en onze representaties van onszelf ontstaat een nieuwe realiteit.

Silicon Sights offers a stroll through digital and natural landscapes whilst trying to interpret how they intertwine—a new Romaticism. A fragile dependency comes to light, showing how the digital space can’t thrive without the natural resources of the physical one. The more photorealistic and accurate the virtual simulation, the more computer processing power is necessary, which in turn requires more natural resources to be used for computer chips and the like, leaving an increasingly large carbon footprint.

Carmen Roca Igual

Novel is a dramatic musing on the external and internal masks we choose to put on. The video takes place at the beginning of the lock down in Spain. The characters (Lola, Rosa, Carmen and her Mother) are stuck at home and boredom starts overcome them. Before long they question their own self image out loud as they begin to talk to and even gossip with selfies and inanimate objects. The girls go through an introspective journey, in a quarantine, accompanied by their phones and tablets. Their devices invent new gestures that affect our natural behaviors — like the flickering of a Face Filter with a slight tilt of the head to put our masks back on.
