You can’t see the wood for the trees

'Memory is a part of what constitutes our knowledge. Another part of our knowledge is contained in our current perceptions, of what we are seeing, of our own bodies, and of the people and things around us(Histein, W. 2009).'

Installation View

As people increasingly use online media, we have become accustomed to creating artificial memories, which are based on the information we access from the Internet that shape our collective/individual imagination.

The way we normally see and perceive the surroundings passes through imagination. What happens when imagination is influenced by the software culture? The sculptural installation ‘You can’t see the wood for the trees’ enables the experience of this specific aspect of our society through a metaphor; a window, which represents the mediated perception of reality through the lenses ofdigital media and interfaces.
