The narrator in the moving image work GALAXY (2020) is technology itself. The story is generated by an algorithm and offers an interpretation of the brief meeting of the two characters Touch and Long Swipe, an encounter of love and disappointment. Small deviations in the language and the narrative logic reveal our social imprint of how stories are expected to be told and how technology is programmed to follow these perceptions. The mise en scéne is a computer-generated galaxy of objects and images reminiscent of the organic, but dismembered and fragmented, reflecting on the possibility of creating new worlds and stories in digital space by following a subjective system of ordering.
The single screen moving image work with sound is accompanied by an Augmented Reality Postcard. By scanning the image on the postcard you can retrieve the setting of the video as a 3D model wherever you are.
