WINDOWS ECLIPSE, 2011, 6:18 min
To daydream about reality, a journey through digital reality and back. Based on the anthropologist Marc Augés’ idea of “non-places”, Mateusz Pek uses images from YouTube, the virtual platform Second Life, and his own mobile phone to investigate visual effects in this borderland between real and virtual places. Windows Eclipse merges fragments from a fleeting digital world and provides an insight into its internal landscape.
Mateusz Pęk (PL); born 1978 in Lębork; Master of Fine Arts 2002, Academy of Fine Arts, Gdansk; lives and works in Gdansk.
