What is your next project about?
I’m currently working on a series of videos titled Finnish Memes, made in the landscape surrounding Helsinki and combined with images from Finnish internet culture. This work addresses sculptural space in online media. I’m interested in the space where narrative video meets glitch and thinking about online media in physical terms and addressing this in the infinitely reproducible media of video. The case for digital aura is best supported by the following question: Is it as hard to delete files from your hard drive as it once was to let go of nostalgic objects?
