Moving beyond the threshold which divides the space between the real and the imaginary--the physical and the virtual. Dispersed and projecting: I immerse myself and become an(other).
This work explores the relationship between technology, the body and female subjectivity.
The alienation experienced when the subject comes into direct contact with the screen, the interface, and the code is the affect of the displaced embodiment which resonates within the symbolic realm of cyberspace.
While the corporeal body disappears, it is replaced by an immaterial outline of our passing presence. The code, then, refers to the body's DNA structure: what becomes visible to the eye is that which is generally hidden.
As we shift toward a state of immaterial existence, technology increasingly eliminates all traces of material reality.
