Gap on the Inside: What Young People Should Know about the Digital Divide
Single-channel video, 32 minutes, 2000-2002.
Anthropomorphizing the figure of analog technology in the age of the digital, Max Novick and I created a character that carried out claims around mobile communication to a different end: slow, nomadic, homeless, and alone. I wanted to film a character in live situations interacting with a technological apparatus embarrassingly out-of-step with the times. The lingering technological detritus of the past shows us what is missing from technological accounts of the present.
