We Are All Under the Same Sky, 2018. Emergency blankets, helium, human presence sensor, digital environmental sounds. 82.7 x 63" and 41.35 x 31.5".
Are immersive sonic sculptural works that dwell on what connects us in the world, how are we connected, the digital environment, the monetization of data; new extractivist colonial practices. Created from sheets of lightweight emergency blankets shaped as clouds, which are inflated with helium and air, and activated by peoples footprint. The clouds are provided with a programmed motion detector which registers human presence in the space and activates a series of sound fragments, all related to the registration and storage of data on the Internet. To what extent is the information we leave behind in the digital space utilized? How does this digital track determine the information which in turn reach us? How is this influencing behavior?
