the construct: Iterations on a built environment

multimedia sculpture (2018)

3-channel video/sound composition, 60” LED screen, 15” laptop, & 7” tablet, HDMI cable, laptop charger, USB cable, 2 wooden tables.
9 min./loop, dimension variable.

“iterations on a built environment” attempts to construct a world from a pre-existing one through rendering multiple iterations on a 360-degree photograph, accompanied by a text collage collected from various mobile and computer software.
While meditating on the contradiction between the constant flattening of the physical reality and the striving desire to construct a new one in the virtual sphere, the work addresses notions of space abstraction and monumentalization, corporate and real-estate ideology, and world-building through spectacles.
