Forward Thinking Sound – 2014

Description: Animated Gif, 15 janvier 2035

“The idea is to kind of bring back some of these old memories of technology before it got so complicated. When things were simple but still very expressive… a lot of people have memories of these different technologies and now things get updated. But it doesn’t always get better right? So it’s just kind of a throwback to some of that older technology, kind of disnovating in terms of going to something simpler instead of something more complicated. But at the same time it is sort of forward-thinking. We are calling the piece Forward Thinking Sound. The idea is going back to some of that idealism and reapplying it to the situation today.” – Michael Ang

Story

This was the second time that I acted as Emilie Gervais’ avatar. She and Gautier were in Marseille during the Art Hack Day, and I was on location in Paris. With the tight timeline for the Hack Day the Marseille team found an old computer for me to pick up on the outskirts of Paris. I was the runner and brought the box back in time.
