Newsreel and documentary video fragments gathered from online searches populate dynamic virtual structures. Forming a browser-type interface between real and imaginary virtual worlds which is saturated with information in constant flux. 3D video clips stitched together over time mirror how we browse the Internet – Immersed in transient online information and continually switching between one web page or app to the next. Processing eclectic data and visuals as we go. Borrowed clips include themes such as environmental/climate events, protests & border surveillance. Also, AI (Artificial Intelligence) related themes such as supermarket self-service checkouts, GAN images, Amazon warehouse robots, and Google voice assistants which are increasingly interacting with 21st Century life and often operating autonomously from behind-the-scenes or remote locations.
