28.9.–7.10.2018

We’re being exposed to more visual information than ever, and images are flooding our heads. The digital age insists that we stay in constant motion, keeping pace with never-ending progress. The result: Lingering in the moment, standing still, stopping and smelling the flowers, putting future and past on hold is increasingly difficult. The present? It seems unreal and distant. Thanks to sensor technology and projection, the organic objects in handmitauge’s experience are transformed into playful mirrors of our inner conflict. As a symbol of our existence, the work breaks up speed and motion into granular, distant digital fragments. Only after prolonged introspection does the projection return the object constellation to its apparent original state – which is unreal and direct.
