Outlook: Untitled attempts to offer a moment of respite within our hyper-mediated culture where all meaning is delivered in visual packets of bits and bytes. At the liminal time of sunrise and sunset, a period of transition that can lead to new perspectives, a frenzy of pop-up windows referencing the current social and economic global crisis, are interrupted by an unsuspecting presence. Can the click of a button provide us with notions of how to affect the state of things or do we just remain in a state of perpetual liminality?
Commissioned by the Whitney for whitney.org as part of the Internet art series “Sunrise and Sunset” curated by Christiane Paul.
