STRAIGHT TO THE GALLOWS•2019

gallery/b holanda

DIRECTOR: Julie Goldstein

COUNTRY: USA

RUNTIME: '22


SYNOPSIS: Once there was a time when images were made from head to hand. Devices came into being which allowed the chemical capture of light. Persistence of vision, motion. Electrical capture of light. Distribution and broadcast, reception with the set. Computers - the pixel - a fraction of light - more like pointillism, a comic. The speed, multiplicity of transmission - active viewership. The generation of synthetic images to replicate the real, not necessarily in terms of realism of representation, but in terms of realism in interaction. Interaction, an extension of active viewing. Randomness increases. Screen being replaced by an immersive experience. Projection of a holographic image. Virtual becomes a replacement space.
