"Beyond" is an interactive work which allows the viewer to explore a kind of mental geography, in which they find themselves traveling through time and space encountering my virtual alter-ego who, as a medium, that "interface" between the living and the dead, transmits "movies" that record her impressions. It is, in the words of Baudelaire, "a city full of dreams where ghosts accost the passers-by in broad daylight".

BEYOND
INTERACTIVE ART
CDROM

Beyond is a myterious virtual world. In a playful spirit of philosophical inquiry, it explores the paradoxes of technology, desire and the paranormal posed since the birth of mechanical reproduction; the phonograph severing the voice from the body, photography capturing the soul and cinema resurrecting the dead.

 

"Beyond" operates in a playful spirit of philosophical inquiry exploring
the paradoxes of technology, desire and the paranormal posed since the
birth of mechanical reproduction. From around 1850 to 1940, there was an almost magical element in the way people saw these developments, an issue I feel important to bring to light as we enter the digital realm.





I am interested in letting the past breath through fragments of old films and photographs often found at flea markets. My QuickTime movies are made "live" without digital manipulation, by re photographing film and text with the Web Cam. Just as the earliest film makers struggled to find a new visual language through the newly developed technology of cinema, here I aim to invent in a personal way, a new articulation of space and time that both grows out of cinema yet goes beyond it.
