The Work: "Luminous Point"
Luminous Point is an interactive video about memory. Memory both human and artificial. Navigating per remote control, the viewers explore a digital recreation of the artist’s Lower East Side tenement apartment—a virtual wunderkammer and archive in which distant places and different times, personal biography and cultural history, fact and fiction all coexist just like in the mental space of memory. Effortlessly changing between microscopic and macroscopic dimensions, the visitors pass through a labyrinth of spaces, descend into subterranean worlds, lift off skywards like dreamers, free from the binds of gravity and linear time. Luminous Point seamlessly combines video and computer generated material, creating a new form of electronic work, a hybrid composed of elements from narrative and documentary video/film, computer game, virtual reality, and photography.
It's going to happen Rain or Shine.
