Transformers - Looped screenings
During Transformers we’re opening up the doors to our darkest space. Come down into a unique universe from Wednesday to Saturday: each week we’re showing a different video where seapunk, memes, green screens, Photoshop, Tumblr aeshetic, Facebook, YouTube and selfies are used as though they were paint or clay.
In this film and video programme transformation is understood as the radical change in the way people deal with images. Internet has turned image production and perception upside down, with a surging tide of images rising daily. Nowadays everyone has access to all media and generates and shares on a massive scale.
A mere handful of artists speculate about the influence of digitalization on our daily life, with collages of discovered virtual images. They play tricks with the infinite reproducibility and variability of digital material and shape (virtual) reality to their will.
The trend of creating artistic work with digital tools has been encompassed within the term ‘post-Internet art’ for several years. Post-Internet refers to the change in our personal interaction with the image, mass media and popular culture. In turn, the artists work with the raw materials and ideas which everyone throws on line thereby creating new configurations and future realities.
