Digital Wondering 07

Die Digital Wonderings sind eine Reihe von Online-Diskursen rund um das kuratorische Thema TRUST. Sie können jede Form annehmen: von einem Gespräch, über ein kurzes Statement oder einen Film, bis hin zu einer fotografischen Serie. Die von Susan Bright und Nina Strand eingeladenen Mitwirkenden kommen aus den unterschiedlichsten Disziplinen und können nach Belieben auf das Thema und das Format antworten und reagieren. Die Beiträge erscheinen zunächst im englischen Original.

Clara Hausmann - Editing Drawer / Editierschublade

Clara Hausmann’s work explores ideas related to infrastructural mutations, information systems such as linguistic transpositions, law issues and cultural typologies. This contribution, made especially for the Digital Wonderings program, uses the construction and de-construction of the envelope as an object to explore ideas related to infrastructural disseminations of information. In relation to trust the work here uses letters to act as metaphorical objects for the wider digital space where information is organized and dispersed, where messages are sent and received and where secrets are stored. We know this space is one that constantly realigns and shifts information and with every refresh makes new ‘edits’ of associative viewing and storage. The digital space is one we have to trust – if only reluctantly.

 

Hausmann states: This is an editing drawer for images turned into addresses. The formal confusion between global and universal amplifies the contradiction of limited accessibility, which brings along an atmosphere of melodrama.

 

Hausmann konstatiert: Es handelt sich um eine Editierschublade für Bilder, die in Ansprachen verwandelt sind. Die formale Verwirrung zwischen global und universell verstärkt den Widerspruch der begrenzten Zugänglichkeit, der die Atmosphäre eines Melodramas mit sich bringt.
