Single-channel video installation; movement sensor, PC; duration: 1'35"
As the viewer approaches the video installation consisting of a computer standing on a typical office desk, the screen turns on and starts playing the video: the viewer sees the computer’s desktop, with the folder called ‘the sense of existence', the cursor moves to the folder and opens it up, a new window opens with another few folders of sub-categories... video continues ...’ A question of vital importance to humanity is lost in ordered labyrinths of virtual spaces.
Each new mouse click only takes us further away from solving an issue, similar to how progressing mass media distracts us from grasping reality. Such action turns into a situationist spectacle, in which the choice of particular media as a means of understanding substitutes any effort to grasp reality and the meaning of existence within it.
