Double conscious space / 2018

Mirroring foil, art-fair walls, led-screens

Site specific installation

Prospects & Concepts / Art Rotterdam




Double conscious space reflects on developments in blockchain technology and a theoretical model called Doughnut Economics, and questions the apparent transparency. Technological development and its influence in communication and information systems carry a (false) promise of transparency. This work asks for whom the information is accessible. And if accessible, wonders how to interpret? 

 

The one-way-mirroring foil changes its surface from reflective to transparent, and vice versa, through the presence or absence of light. It wishes to allude to double consciousness and the societal clash between increasing individualism and collective importance.
