48 hours | Perceptual Disconnection

Perceptual Disconnection

Tuesday 19th November 2013, 5-8pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

This installation by Javier Vidal Aguilera, Jonathan Hemelberg, Sara Ocklind and Claire Holmes is based on a research project about human perception of the landscape as affected by internet connectivity.

The artists spent four days in a cabin in Skiary by Loch Hourn, with no internet connection and no electricity. Here they explored the interaction between translucent man-made forms within the natural landscape.

Using the concept of 'filters' as something that alters our perception of the environment, the installation enables the perception of landscapes from a fragmented perspective using text, photography and glass.

The time is 2020 and most web traffic is now coming from some manner of portable device. If Google's Eric Schmidt predictions have come true, we will have truly reached a time where "The web will be everything, but it will be nothing. It will be like electricity, it is just there."

Bryan Rieger of Yiibu will challenge us to think about the role of the web going forward. What steps must we take to build a world where interactions with the web are truly seamless? What would a seamless web even look like? How can we ensure the web remains strong?
