publication: Solar Landscapes in 'Machines Will Watch Us Die'

04. June 2018

"On the surface, the digital is about information exchanges and technological advances, but what lies beneath the shiny interface of digital culture? machines will watch us die explores digital decay as a process that encompasses different timescales and materialities. Information travels on components made of rare earth minerals and ores. By linking materials belonging to deep time – the million-year timescale of Earth’s ecological cycles – to the immediacy perceptible to humans, the artworks visualize different responses to digital decay."

As part of an exhibition curated by Patrizia Costantin, the accompanying booklet contains my text "Solar Landscapes. Soil, Image and the Interventions of Vision".
