TRANSMISSIONS (excerpt) (2008) - Grey Gersten

(1)


There is a deeply confessional element involved in our private interactions with technology. We confide in machines because the illusion of their detachment creates a false sense of anonymity. Transmissions examines how automatons facilitate interactive fantasy realms in direct response to our unspoken emotional projections. The virtual dream space aspires to be a reflection of the individual but is not autonomous. Fallout data arbitrarily collides and resonates within a larger network of users. This network can be thought of as a sentient organism, one that feeds and redistributes our collective subconscious.
