Screen dream

Presence in screen reality is becoming more important and believable compared to the presence in a physically existing space. Ostensibility surrounds reality in the form of various fragments of ever-changing and abundant information. Transmissiveness, filtratedness and fragmentedness of images allow the rhizomic divergence of the stories. The dimension of presence flashes past with the high speed of pixels. Surface structures have been suspended; what will be left is fascination and absence. Floating along such asymmetric pattern reminds of a dream where images randomly alternate and where everything is possible.

The works at the current exhibition have been inspired by the intense colours, high-resolution images resembling landscapes, reflections, undulating lights, structures underneath and above the surfaces appearing on the screens.
