From Digital To Analogue
To graduate at an Academy for Digital Art without a computer?
Is that at all possible?
How does the computer influence our lives?
With these questions Jeroen van Loon started this project; two months long Jeroen van loon did not touch his computer neither privately or as a Digital Media Artist and documented this in his Analogue Blog.
From the research of his blog, he created this installation which is a interactive journey through different generations and the changing influence of the personal computer on their daily life.
Four big computer screens are hanging, one behind the other as a portrait. Each of them with their own theme e.g, social communication, information use or dependence. For every computerscreen there are four different x-rays, each a generation, from the ‘50’s until the ‘80’s.
By hanging a x-ray in front of a computerscreen, the author and the personal computer itself exhibit the letter and it is in this way that a new consciousness on our digital world becomes apparent and so does the place of the computer in it.
